I did this.

Elizabeth bought me some brilliant things for my birthday in May, among them was this

It actually came as a kit with the bubblewrap, cloth and instructions on how to felt. So yesterday I decided to have a go and came up with this

It was great fun and although I probably was a bit impatient and didn't do all the stages for long enough,was over generous with the soap it came out OK. I resisted the easy option to do the flower design shown on the instructions and did my own thing. It looks better than the photo LOL

I have been busy since being home but its surprising how much time can be wasted faddling about with nothing much.

The second secret is coming along nicely. Mother Nature 2 has her head sewn on and her skirt and I am trying to decide what to do with all her leaves- leave them plain or embellish them.

The timeis going so fast, its our anniversary tomorrow (15 years) we are celebrating at the weekend.

I've kind of been curious about this new felting thing but haven't tried it yet. I like what you did and it shows creativity :o)

Happy (belated) Anniversary you two!

I tried felting styrofoam eggs with my son one Easter. He was better at it than me. He was so proud! I think I used to much water.

I nominated you for the Kreativ Blogger award. :o)
