Over on the felt and fiber forum we had a holiday exchange. This is the wonderful gift I got From Teri Ann.
He is expertly needle felted and the wool in all naturally dyed. the wool was dyed using indigo,cochineal, Barberry twigs and cleavers roots. He will have pride of place when the decorations go up.
this is a short post as I haven’t had any time for felting the last little while. I was getting ready for the North Gower Farmers’ Market Christmas Sale December 1. that meant lots of baking. I made steak and Guinness pies, lamb and vegetable pies and tourtieres. My mom made steak and mushroom and steak and kidney pies. we sold 60 large and 35 small pies. I also made scones and dog and cat treats My husband also backed lots of bread, my daughter made muffins. It was a long day but we enjoyed seeing everyone from the summer market and the new faces too.
This was taken about half way through the day. The bags at the end are sold pies waiting to be picked up after people finish their shopping.
