Sorry to have been away so long.
The reasons are various.
Lack of inspiration.
Addiction to and compulsive playing of online Scrabble.
A severe bout of hypochondria brought about by the discovery of elderly neighbour on bathroom floor having had a heart attack, and lack of time due to subsequent visiting of said neighbour in one hospital 5 miles away,and her husband in another 12 miles away in the opposite direction.
So an ECG, and a course of indigestion pills later here I am.
Now brace yourselves for this....
My brother plays golf.
He asked me to make him some head covers for his clubs.
I was excited.
But the results of the experiments at the the felt group yesterday are...well..see for yourself.
The first picture reminds me of the hospital visits...(mens ward)
Do you see what I mean?
Better try again.
In my longer than usual absence I have been nominated for a sunshine blog award by no fewer than 4 other bloggers.
So instead of passing it on to a chosen few, I will link to those who nominated me and if you feel like nominating yourself..feel free.
So here they are and I thank them all. They have lovely blogs well worth a visit.
Maria of Creative Bumblebee
Do go and have a look at her fairy costume work.
Elizabeth Armstrong , the studio felter
If you want to see how its done, beautiful felt work look there.
Annica of Fabulous Threads with gorgeous felt and stitching and a glimpse into Swedish life.
And Fibrefrolics where you can see more felting and some lovely photography.
Do look at the snowdrop post, its beautiful.
I am way behind with blog reading but do my best. Don't always comment but do try to read.
Must go ..its my turn in one of my scrabble games.
