My bags are again packed.
There are more of them than usual. So where am I off to? Trotting the globe?
No! I am travelling on my beloved 555 Stagecoach bus to …..
While Ambleside and it’s wonderful library are always worth a visit yesterday I was a woman on a (new) mission. Let’s see what all the baggage reveals.
Everything I need to run an introduction to needle felting workshop. The perfect way to spend three hours cheering up a dank Cumbrian Monday afternoon.
In the main everyone avoided bloodshed (I may have mentioned before those needles smart) and going by the quiet concentration I’d say they enjoyed themselves. The wonderful work-shoppers all tried three different techniques for creating ‘flat’ pieces of needle felting: a small sheepy picture made with various wool tops; using a pastry cutter as a template; and needle felting onto another fabric. Each person brought something new and exciting to their makes. I certainly learnt a thing or two!
Cue ‘Vision On’ Gallery Music. Apologies to those who have never have heard this catchy tune. For you and for those that want a walk down memory lane here is a link. Now let’s enjoy what these creative folk made:
Aren’t they glorious?! So much for Miserable Monday. The worst day of the year? Phah! I don’t think so.
Big thanks to all of you that joined me at Ambleside Library yesterday. You made it a very special and inspirational afternoon.
Until next we meet,
