...of playing with the new toys. :-)
This is my first attempt at needle felting. I was going to take a pic of the felt before I embellished it but I got carried away, so here is the final product. The first pic was taken with the flash and, as usual, has washed out the colour but it does show embroidery and beads quite well. The second pic, sans flash, is a better representation of the colour but is a bit fuzzy due to camera shake.
On Tuesday I ordered an acid dye kit from P&M Woolcraft which arrived today. These are 'proper' dyes :-) rather than the Easy Peasy dyes I've used before. The kit includes 5 colours: red, blue, yellow, jade and brown plus a mixing cup and measuring spoon. I also ordered some syringes in different sizes, so I feel a bit like a mad crack dealer or something - but be assured they will only be used for dyeing!
