I decided to revisit a technique I learnt in my first year at College. I do enjoy making felt and adding other elements whilst laying out the fibres. I have been asked to make some small pictures using the techniques I use in my corsages and wristcuffs. I have never made a picture before so I created some tiny fragments that I could work into with embroidery and maybe some beading.....
felt, silk fibres and lace
an accidental heart!
seems to be a bit of a pattern occurring here!

I have not been out and about and have missed my visits to my local charity shops. I found these little gems yesterday, in all my favourite colours.....
subtle spring shades
I love an old bobbin of thread with an interesting label
lovely crochet trims - the dye pot beckons!
and finally a lovely bag of buttons and old blanket labels - a gift from Gill P - thank you Gill!
I hope you all have something interesting and exciting to work on at the moment.......
p.s. Emily and I have been decorating this week, she is blooming, tired but well. Only five weeks to go.... until next time Jayne x
