03 Oct Fibres at last!
Today I tracked down the parcels that Carmen and I have been waiting 2 weeks for, they had got bogged down in Gorey of all places! Anyway, instead of spending a full day felting I hot footed it to Gorey this morning and was thrilled to discover that all the books, fibre, bits and bobs from Wollknoll and the RUGS had finally made it safely to Ireland. A big relief.
I decided when I eventually got home that I really needed to tidy the studio up a bit (more than a bit if truth be told) before I could even get the box into the room. A couple of hours later I spent a really enjoyable time unpacking and sighing over all the wool and little extras that I had bought on my recent trip to Germany. Obviously I then needed to actually try out some of the wool, a scarflet, couple of corsages and a piece of flat felt to be made into a bag for ‘Bag Lady Swaps’ later and I am ready to call it a day.
This weekend, internet connection permitting, I am going to finish my posts about the rug making workshop with Mehmet Girgic. Next on the adgenda is to put up a page about the classes I am running for the winter and then I need to put up some items on my Etsy shop, ah well, it is best to be busy!!
