Encrusted Crazy Quilting.

I have been very lucky to be able to start this course with Sharon B.
As part of this I've had great fun playing with colour.

Its really interesting, looking at things in a very different way. Thanks Sharon.

On Monday I had a great time trying to make felt. This was my first attempt and was great fun. I go to a Textiles class run on Monday evenings in the local Sixth Form College. Its a good opportunity to go and have a chat whilst getting to learn how to do new things.
Feltmaking is messy, wet and lots of fun. The piece of felt I made is nothing exciting or brilliant, but that doesn't matter. Ruth, our tutor showed us all how to do it and then away we went.
A lovely, chatty evening, being creative. Wonderful!

Too long.

Its been rather too long since I sat down and added some words to this Blog of mine.
Sorry anyone who is reading this. Work has been taking over and time has had to be used for other things.
The stitching still goes on, but slowly.
I shall get my work-life balance back under control somehow.
Meanwhile, anyone got any advice? Or have you found the perfect way of enjoying your hobby whilst earning?
