About Me

My photo
I am a lifelong fabric artist who loves bringing a home to life with quirky, unique and sumptuous pieces of textile art. I learnt my craft from sharing many a happy hour sewing with my talented mother. I particularly like collage, free-machining, needle-felting and creating home furnishings using a combination of machine and hand sewing. I love incorporating vintage and reclaimed fabrics, buttons, beads, jewellery and other items in my work to give them a second chance at being beautiful.

WOYWW - Felting sheep...again!

Afternoon all! I'm afraid if you're a regular visitor to my page you're in for yet another instalment of needle-felted sheep! New visitors - welcome,  hope you like my felted sheep!

This week I'm mounting some of my small sheepy pics and also working on a much larger picture combining the sheepy landscape with my flowery fields.

It's a work in progress but you get where I'm going with it, right?

It's been a week of sheep for us this week. Monday's weather was fab so the boy and I went on a little walk with our mum and toddler friends. Ben thoroughly enjoyed seeing the sheep and lambs in the field as we followed the path down to a little stream.

As I type, Ben is down for a little nap, but once His Lordship wakes we're off to our nearest National Trust property, Attingham Park, where you can see deer grazing. Maybe next time you drop by I might have been inspired to move on from felty sheep to felty deer pictures!

That's all for me - got a workshop this weekend with TWELVE members of an Embroiderers Guild group (12...gulp!). They sound like a lovely bunch so I'm really looking forward to it but I've got lots to prepare to make sure they have a fab day!

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy crafting

  2. Fab photos of our happy boy! That sheepy pic is coming along nicely - will look forward to your deerest one! x

  3. Love your sheepy pics - and felting is such fun to look at, hold, and do! The weather has certainly become more springlike - glad you were able to get out into the countryside. Fabulous.
    12 members of an embroiderers guild - oh, boy, gulp indeed!!! Trust it goes really well.
    Take care. God bless.

  6. Love your sheep! They are just as cute as they can be! I didn't do a WOYWW this week, but I still wanted to come by and see what you were working on! That little boy is just the cutest too! :) I am still on my mad educational search with the needle felting!! Lot's to learn, and various art styles in that craft! All very exciting! Wish I were across the sea to take one of your classes! :)

  7. Looks like your son had a lovely day!

    I've been visiting your desk each WOYWW and you've inspired me to give needle felting a try. I've got a little starter kit so maybe one week it will be on my desk finished!
