Blogiversary

I have just realised that this blog reached its one year anniversary on Tuesday. I can’t believe how the time has flown.

I had a look back through my old posts expecting to find my style or felting techniques to have changed over the year but I’m not sure they really have. Certainly I have learned some better ways of making felt but for the most part I am still using the same basic techniques such as nuno felting and using resists and inclusions in my felt. The only obvious change is my choice of fibres, a year ago I was almost exclusively using merino but lately have been using more Corriedale and BFL. Have you noticed any changes in your felt-making over the last year or so?

Here are a couple of pieces I have been working on this week.

The finished pumpkin bag:

And a couple of pods:

I have also been working on a second lichen-inspired wall hanging which is currently drying with various pins holding the lichen folds in place. I will post a photo in a day or two when the pins come out.

Linking up to nina-marieoff the wall Friday

  5. Thank you LeeAnna, I aim to please 🙂 The pumkin bag will go on Etsy in the next day or two and if it hasn't sold by next weekend it will take pride of place in the Sonning exhibition 🙂

  7. Teri – the pumpkin bag is stunning! And your pods are all wonderful. I think the quality and sophistication of design of your felt have really improved over the last year. If you have time, I am sure everyone at the forum would enjoy seeing your pumpkin bag and pods.
