A brilliant day today. I had three lovely ladies for the stitched in felt notebook covers workshop. The work they’ve produced is wonderful, how I wish I could keep it. We began by stitching into fabric, stopped and stitched at the pre-felt stage (part made) and have the opportunity for further stitch and beading at the end.
I wish my photos did better justice to the felt but it was getting dark when we finished. The atmosphere was good with lots of enthusiasm and the day was marred only by the necessary removal of a blackbird carcass from the kitchen. A downside of keeping cats I’m afraid, although not a common occurrence. I feel enthused by their enthusiasm and use of colour, the day has left me on a high. Might just have to go and make some felt.
