A Gnome House — workshop with wool
This fabulous gift will be under the tree christmas morning — and I think it’s going to be an instant favorite. I still have detail work to take care of — but it’s nearly completed. I took a workshop with the fabulous Fiona Duthie and it was great to get hands on help. The only pieces (other than a few balls) I had done before were with articles from Living Crafts — and while they’re great (and the one I followed was actually by Fiona herself — if you read Living Crafts – you’ve seen her work!) nothing beats hands on… I’ve since created a few other felted piece — and I REALLY love the process… Now, if only I could get better at estimating wool… I bought some on the week-end and way way way under estimated what I needed!!
My gnome house grew taller than I had hoped so I cut the top and will use it as part of our seasonal nature ‘table’ display as soon as I complete it. I’ve decided to wait until January to play with “mine” because as it is I’m running out of time to accomplish all that I ‘need’ to accomplish between now and December 25th.
Next week I’m taking another workshop with Fiona — making needle felted figurines. My attempts so far haven’t been fantastic — I can’t wait for the hands on guidance!
