Forgive me for this self indulgent post.
Perhaps if you are not a felt maker or wool lover you won't enjoy it.
I've been making felt for future shapes and brooches.
I have to think of colours and combinations that I wouldn't normally use so I put a few things together and got this.
Thinking outside of my colour comfort zone where I usually end up with duck egg and greys I stuck a few dark colours in. A navy and a maroon and hey presto!
The 1950s appeared.
So I went on and made another because I didn't want to cut the first one up..but it was different again.
I love the unexpectedness of felt.
The way you put two colours on top of each other and get deliciousness.
even where you weren't expecting it.
This could be the centre of a brooch.
There's a bit of silk in here, the blue thats brighter than the rest. Its almost iridescent.
It scares me a bit...I can't predict it and I want to control it...frustration ensues.
I could stare at it for hours ....which is how long it will take it to dry in this weather.
