A day of FELT....

Yesterday I had a FELTastic day..... For starters I received my first ornament from the Christmas ornament swap, isn't it fantastic!!! A gorgeous felt Kiwi slice to hang on our tree made by the very clever Helen whose blog you can check out here. She is super organised getting them done so quickly and it's just the kick up the bum I need to get started on mine. I have done a couple of testers, just not sure which one I am using yet, better get my skates on though....

I also received this lovely package in the mail from the wonderful paperandstring blog where I was recently lucky enough to win one of her FAB giveaways. Look at that fantastic pile of lovely wool felt in all the colours of the rainbow, I have a million ideas of what to do with it.....

I could not resist the cute make your own owl ornament kit and sat up way past my bedtime making this little lovely.......

Yesterday I also made a trip to our local $2 clothing warehouse and picked up a bundle of pure wool jumpers to felt. I am planning on making some pencil rolls for Christmas presents and I am also going to try to make a bag. Here is the pile of already felted green jumpers......

I am having a bit of a felt love affair at the moment and have just ordered every book on felt imaginable from the library. I am also planning on doing a needle felting tutorial, hopefully sometime this week if you are interested. Looks like my crafty week is off to a pretty good start... X

Hi, I love that Kiwi fruit slice. Looks delicious. You are going to have some very fun days in the near future I can see. Be sure to post a pic of your decorations and tree.

PS...I thought you might like to indulge in making these felt treats - don't they look terrific. Note the blog author says to email her for the pattern!!!

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
