Another garment

Have been trying to work in the studio in spite of spraining my foot by standing on a sharp stone in crocs which had become too thin on the sole-standing to felt is my mode of choice so i find sitting to roll a little awkward.Anyway,i managed to finish a little top, using charity shop scarves which i have been squirreling away for quite a while.The colours have worked well and my new method of finishing the felt in the washing machine is very speedy and successful.You do need to know your machine though.It's not a new technique at all-it appeared in ECHOES many moons ago, but i have re-discovered it and love it as a means of speeding up the shrinkage of Nuno felt.

This has taken literally for ever to upload-not sure why, but i'll try to add a detail now.

Finally, the etsy shop is done.

I have spent literally the whole morning adding 5 items to the shop,a mini version of which appears her, but there will be a delay until the widget takes you to my site.I am now v stressed and going to lie down!Meanwhile, a calm photo.

New book

First of all, welcome to new followers-have been meaning to say this for a while,and keep forgetting.

And next,my new RUST AND WOAD BOOK is pictured above.I'll be putting it in my Etsy shop next week-another thing  I've been meaning to do for a while! It has images of the processes involved in dyeing with my two favourite things and some images of my work.

I'm currently working on my linen,devore and felt combinations-further developments of the Snow Queen work I did for the Odense exhibition, at Felt in Focus,which ,by the way, was a really exciting exhibition and a credit to those who mounted it.
