I'm quite excited today and a bit tired, all day I have been editing images and finally uploading my new felted pieces to my Etsy shop. Anyone who lives in Scotland will know how frustrating the daylight at this time of year can be and how difficult it is to get good shots of your work. I like using natural light.
I would be delighted if anyone would take the time to have a little look in my Etsy shop and tell me what you think. I'm new to needle felting and have had so much fun.
I also used a couple of machine embroidered pieces & did some more machine embroidered jewellery which I'm hoping to get uploaded tomorrow...... now I need to catch up with the housework and think about feeding my Husband & children.
I hope you enjoy your visit to Etsy if you do go, there are so many talented people there with so many nice things to inspire........

A Felted Flower ~ First attempt with my felting needles
I like it.....I think the needle felting process is very therapeutic
While I await the next phase of the 'workshop build' this is my temporary workspace. I have taken over the dining area of our home to set up some creative space. Its wonderful that just one table of space can make a difference, can make you feel so much better! ....Of course I have always been able to use this table during the day but the added bonus now is.........I'm not having to clear it up in the evenings!
I have a stash of flat felted pieces & a whole bag of wool tops from a workshop I did about 6 years ago and more recently have become tempted to try needle felting, I purchased my felting needles from 'Mayjanesattic' & found 'Felted bags and Boots' so glad I finally got round to having a go with it all this week.
