In honour of Earth Day …..

Ecosia

Check out Ecosia today, a really cool green friendly search engine as blogged about by Cathy on her art and ecology notebook!  Why not join me and run a search for yourselves to see how many new feltmaking websites and blogs we can find?  I love the idea of saving a little piece of rainforest every time a new search is instigated!

Thanks for all your responses to date regarding etamine, I am dying to get started with a project as soon as my golfing duties are over this evening.

Felting classes, carded fibres and swap images

Hand carded fibres

Hand carded fibres

Here is an image of some recently carded fibres, don’t the colours just glow!  These particular rolls are a mixture of merino, alpaca and mulberry silk.  The orange coloured one was a particular favourite of mine, now it has been incorporated into the BIGGEST felted vessel that I have made to date and I am delighted with the result.  Tomorrow morning, weather permitting I am going to take some shots of it and post them up, it is a very organic shaped ribbed vessel in orange/green/brown tones and I think I feel a series coming on!

Tonight I teach the first in a series of beginners feltmaking classes, back off to tidy again, will it never end.  One other thing that I am going to do before I resume the tidying up is to upload more images to my Flickr account, click here to check out images of some great swap packages that I have received and another image of recently carded fibres.
