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.
