Welcome to my latest adventure .... sharing my journey with FELT through a blog ! The beginning of a whole new chapter for me and one I hope proves fun .
I might even become more computer literate ...........
Here in the inspiring landscape of Torridon, under our umbrella business CROFT 7 , Les & I produce , Artwork , Stories, Willows, Food and Felt.
The latter being the domain of Mrs Fingal
( aka Sheila )........
who has been making felt for over 20 years . So this will be a collection of ancient and modern musings & images.
Last week was most productive , with much sorting & combing of fleece .
Florries made from Hebridean , Blackface Mule & some gorgeous soft grey Blackface X , some smaller commissions, thank you folks , & then more hebridean , felted hard for wellie boot insoles .
So have begun this week on a gentler note , as has the weather , but desk bound to clear out some of the intray , before heading back to the felting shed tomorrow.
The first success I ever had with felt ( all those moons ago ..) resulted in an abstract feltscape of a place close to my heart . Sometimes the pictures are more pictorial & more reliant on a photographic image ..... . so much out there to inspire , on dreich & difficult days( my camera is never far away) . Translating the image in to a workable felt is then the next challenge !!
beginnings of a feltscape ......
Not much time for pictorial work this week as I prepare for Poolewe Christmas Market 5 Dec - look forward to seeing some of you there .
