I think I survived my first week back at work, good job it was only 4 days! So out of touch with everything coupled with a new building and new staff. Consequently I have been simply collapsing in a heap each night instead of being at all creative. Except for Wednesday night when I managed to play catch up with a bit of bobbin lace and gossip at Stitched Up in Sherwood, Nottingham.
So today, whilst Ian is out doing biker type things with Biker Ted, I spent a little time playing. Firstly, I completed the lace so it now just needs tying off and mounting (just???)
I've made six quick doodle key fobs ( awaiting the metal bits)
and I've made my first felted bowl using wool tops, a balloon and a pair of tights. This is just a tryout to see how the method works so the holes are allowed. Next attempt will probably be with natural coloured fleece and maybe stitch to finish...watch this space.
I hear the sound of ice clinking in glass ( in my imagination) and my bottle of Schnapps calling so have a great weekend everyone.
