Today I took a piece of Saori weaving off my loom and now am going to try (you know me and sewing!) and combine it with an experimental felt top to create something totally unique and individual, hopefully not too odd but I’ll keep you updated! This is one of the projects I want to get out of the way in the morning (a bit ambitious???) and I also need to make a couple of scarves tomorrow to bring with me on Wednesday when I give a talk locally to the Borris Active Retirement group. In case you are wondering why I am going to cut and rework this felt top the answer is that although I absolutely love the shape, style and colour it is a bit too cropped for me and as I have not been wearing it decided it should become my first experiment combining felt and weaving!
Thanks again for all your comments re. the nuno felting ‘pictorial’ on YouTube, I will take everything on board and also answer some of the questions some of you posed in my next post tomorrow evening. I will also give some more details of our March felt-a-long. Until then …..
