A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Well 'Fibrefusions' exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham, was extremely well received. It was totally amazing to be part of the whole experience. It was absolutely wonderful to talk to the people who took time to stop by and have a good look. To see the spontaneous reactions on peoples faces when they entered the exhibition area was really lovely.

I have now had a bit of time off, done a lot of yoga, tidied my room which was much needed and caught up on other craft projects, that had been put on hold, while getting ready for the exhibition. Still need to get new listing ready for SewDanish but that will hopefully be this done this week.

Spend the other day playing with wool tops and various types of open weave fabrics, making nuno felt. I would never pretend that I'm a felt maker. In fact I have actually avoided working with wool tops after a severe moth problem some years ago. Moths still give me the creeps, and even thought I know there should be room for all creatures, out of all, that specie is not welcome in my house. But I had a lovely day playing and made some superb textured wool/fabric surfaces. Mind you, I couldn't get them to shrink/texture enough, so in the end I put them in the tumble drier on high heat for a while. That did the trick. Every piece puckered up beautifully :-)
