Hello again!

Well, it has been a little while, as I have been on holiday with the family in Queensland.

Yesterday, I had a great day with my friends experimenting with something new - felting.
I have been wanting to try this for quite a while.

We had a great time, although the efforty taken to make a large "pre-felt" was time consuming, and I must admit, I enjoyed making smalller items more.

Here is a picture of my small project. It has silk tops running through it, which didn't felt with the wool. The result is actually very soft and would be nice to cuddle.

Today, I have been working on a frinedship quilt. Members of our craft group "The Ligar Street Quilters" decided to start a "Round Robin" freindship quilt earlier this year when we were on a weekend away. Six of us decided we would love to do this, and so began our year long journey to create a border for each other. We are now on border number two, and change over is next week, so I thought I had better get a wriggle on! Deadlines are wonderful things! I can't show you what I have come up with, just in case Christine is having a look - she is not allowed to see her quilt until next year!

Tonight, I had a quick lesson on crochet from my wonderful friend Annie! I haven't done any crochet for probably thirty years! Wow, that makes me feel old! Here is a picture of what I did with Annie.

Tomorrow, I will attempt to make a list of things to do. ;)
