Yesterday we had our annual Guild outdoor day to finish before the holiday season. And as usual we had glorious weather. This time we have been felting. Only a small project as we were with 15 and you need space for felting. With the silk that I dyed we have made paper by laying out the silk on some wet net curtain (that itself lay on top of bubble wrap plastic with the bubbles down rather than up). When silk was layed out we put a gauze over (the type used for insect blinds) and than a wallpaper paste smoothed over to bind the silk together.
merino fleece. We each had a piece of about 30cm square of this fleece.
Here we are busy cutting out shapes. In the foreground you can see my first flower.
We had a great time together and after the felting we had our meal together. Everyone brought something to either eat or drink.
I was ready for bed when I came home as I'm suffering from shingles. Lucky only a few spots since this week (and how I found out that it is shingles) but the pain has been there for a few weeks now and I have not felt like doing much. This is the 2nd time for me to have shingles. Oh well, it will pass again. For the time being I will take it easy.
