Procrastinator’s Challenge!

One of the blogs that I regularly follow is Jo-Anne Carter’s ‘The Carter Clan’.  Jo-Anne is running a great surprise give away and has cleverly linked it in to a challenge running on the  ‘A Hole in the Basket Primatives’ blog.  Well, I know that I am really up to my eyes organising Mehmet’s trip next week but this was just the jolt that I needed to get me to finish some projects. 
Procrastinator's Challenge!

Procrastinator's Challenge!

As a result I have entered Jo-Anne’s give away and Ann’s challenge so here goes with the projects that I want to finish during January ……..

  1. Handle and closure on large green/lime/white bag.
  2. Handle on small green bag and possibly some beading.
  3. Handle on small blue/purple/navy/white bag.
  4. Handle on natural bag with goat hair.
  5. Handle and closures on the small mixed blue saddle bag.
  6. Wet and re-felt the brown and cream vessel so that I can use it as a bag instead of a desktop tidy.  Add a handle, poss leather.
  7. Make a closure for the red and pink mosaic neck wrap.
  8. String felt beads to make tactile outdoor and indoor mobiles.
  9. String beads to make jewellery.
  10. Decide how to finish and hang my batiked circle fabric, been waiting a long time for this one!!
  11. Possibly make something with the blue/purple nuno felt you can just see peeking out from behind the bags.
  12. Possibly add a handle and closure to the nuno felted bag just visable to the right of the nuno neck wrap.

I also placed a large order with Wollknoll this afternoon for the wool that I need for the 2 rug making workshops with Mehmet Girgic.  He is making the rug bases in Turkey as we speak and sending the special enormous plastic woven mats that we will be using to roll the rugs in tomorrow.  These courses will be such great fun, I am tossing around so many ideas in my head for the two rugs that I intend making (I will be doing both workshops) but have still not settled on any one style yet!  We are SO lucky to have a feltmaker with such a worldwide profile travelling here to Ireland that I am amazed more people haven’t confirmed their booking yet, only one week to go!!

Off now to get stuck into those projects!

  1. I enjoy reading about your felting escapades!

    Have fun with Mehmet – I made a rug last year and still remember those three days very well – Mehmet was such a great teacher as well as a good cook – he made us a special lunch! A great fun and productive time for all who attended; I learned so much.

    There is a posting of the experience buried somewhere on my blog! http://www.hermajestymargo.blogspot.com.

  2. Hi Nicola, I wish you a lot of succes and learning. I hope there is a lot of interest in Ireland – here in Holland everbody seems to have their wintersleep – hope they wake up soon and will registrate for a workshop, otherwise…. Maybe I can contact you afterwards and having some tips&tricks before Mehmet will be here.

Please comment if you feel like it, I love the interactive nature of my blog!
