I LOVE THE SUN!! It makes everything better, and art work easier to complete. I have got 3 bin bags full of fleece out of storage and I am hoping this beautiful weather holds up so I can start some proper mass felting.
Today has been a bit of a work out helping put up an exhibition then heading home to play with wool. I had already pre-washed my Welsh Sheeps Fleece (bought locally), so today I carded the fleece to get rid of any stray bits of dirt, hay and knots. Then I laid it all out ready and used the wet felting technique to create a fabric from the original fleece.I would tell you what the blue is for in there, but where would the fun be if you already know the ending? ;-) Photos to follow which are a step by step of my felting process
Keep checking back to continue to see my work in process :-)
Enjoy the sunshine !
