Fantastic felting workshop taught, crippled with my back!

Yesterday I tutored the felting workshop at the 3rd ‘Pick up your needles’ day at the Arts Centre in Tinahely, Co. Wicklow and we had another fantastic and creative time.  Several of the participants were returning felters and it is great to see them as they progress and learn new skills, yesterday they were working with resists and all made either gorgeous bags or in one case an amazing felt vessel.  The beginners started with flat felt in the morning and in the afternoon worked on flowers and cords which seemed to go down really well.  The improvers joined in on the flower or cord sessions depending on how they wanted to finish their seamless piece and altogether a lot of good quality felt was produced, satisfying for the participants and also for me too!

My big problem today is that I hurt my back on Friday (recurrance of an old lower back injury) and I really need to be fully fit to get some felting done and help Alan in his election campaign.  We have had a busy week starting the canvassing process and getting the election posters up and out, I don’t want to be too crippled to felt in any down time I have, submissions need to be in this week for 3 projects that I am interested in so off to get myself into gear and live to fight another day!

  1. Aw, sorry to hear your back was bad after the PUYN workshop on Sat. It was certainly a busy day, so it would be a difficult for anyone challenged with back issues.

    Hope you’re recoverd soon for all your felting and election commitments….

  3. I have been so busy with my quilting and machine embroidery. I just finished a Carnivale wall hanging that was all paper pieced.I have made some felted landscapes, and done some knitting too. Sorry to hear about your back injury. I hope that you feel better soon, as I know how busy that you always are, as I have been following all your posts.
    Get well soon!

  4. Good morning Nicola,

    I’m sorry to hear about the injury to your back. Mine would have given out long ago with your hectic schedule. I hope you’re feeling better soon.

    Take care,
    Dawn
