New fibery fun

It’s a long story and rather more complicated than it should be but…

in today’s post was a parcel of Torch Island and Inferno rovings, plus a felting tool. I owe Copperpot many thanks. This means that I have an embarrassment of fibre, and will have not one but two felting tools at my disposal.

I hurt my back this morning – actually not so much my back but in the hip region. It went twang! when I emptied the dishwasher (always did hate dishwashers) and now I am having mucho mobility issues. Am pretty much confined to sitting in a straight back chair, so I seized my opportunity and I have been needle felting. Two pieces are under way. I don’t have much of a clue about what I am doing bit, for now, I am just trying to get a feel for the materials/tools/process.

Needle felting seems to be a lot of fun. I can see that I shall want to do a lot of this in the future. Pictures of my first attempts will be forthcoming, when light increases and pain subsides.

I think I would like a book on needle felting. Can anybody recommend a good inspirational one, please?

Nell’s excessive drinking and urination have ramped up considerably. Hence I was outside at a little past 2 am this morning, by which time the car was already covered in a sparkling frost. On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
