Arms ache from felting!

My arms ache this evening after a long rolling session which seemed to go on forever!  I was delighted to get a free day to felt, especially as it was unexpected because I had been meant to play a golf match this morning but my opposition couldn’t make it.  Over the last couple of days I have been away attending residential workshops as part of the toursim course I am attending and it was great to get a mental break and back into the creative swing of things!  I started the day by ironing and working on the edges of a nuno felt project and then got stuck in to laying out a really thick pad of fibres ‘a la’ Sigrid Bannier.   I have spent absolutely hours rolling, heating and rolling again to make sure that the felt is fulled and strong enough to punch into more striped felt beads which I will string over the weekend to make some more fun jewellery.  Over the last while I seem never to stay still for very long and I really need to make myself some new accessories that I can wear at all the events that I appear to be going to every week.  In the run up to the local elections I only expect this to get more hectic (my partner Alan is running for the Green Party in our local elections which take place at the beginning of June and I am his campaign manager!!) so I better concentrate over the next week or so and get them underway!  It is lashing rain at the moment here so hopefully I will get to take some pictures of recent work tomorrow and promise to upload them as soon as I get a minute.

  1. Good morning Nicola,

    My word, is there anything you can’t do? Feltmaker extraordinaire, campaign manager, teacher. No wonder you needed a day of rest! Hope you enjoyed your day of felting. Can’t wait to see pictures.

    Good luck Alan, in your election run. I looked over your blog page…It looks great. You’ve got a wonderful campaign manager.

    Hope we can all meet someday.

    Take care,
    Dawn
