Wet Felting...

After spending a wonderful weekend at the textile and wool fair in Sheffield I was itching to get creative and make something. So this afternoon I got out my collection of Merino wools

along with the new ones I bought at the show

 I decided to use a selections of several different shades of green and cream for my project.

I've taken several pictures to show the changes in the fleece during the felting process

This picture shows the fleece is starting to mesh together

a close up of my favorite side. This is the side I am going to build my project on.

Hello to all the ladies I meet this weekend.

Happy Crafting

Love and hugs Lynne xox
