Felted Flowers

Felted Flowers

It has been busy around here as we are starting at a new Farmers’ market this weekend and we have been getting ready. This was difficult because they hadn’t sent us any thing about being accepted until a few days ago. There has not been much time for felting but I have managed to do a little. I made wet felted flower pins last year. They sold fairly well but the ones I had left seem tired looking so I am sprucing them up by needle felting some lines on them.

The other exiting thing is that a couple of weeks ago I wont the free give way from world of wool on face book. they sent me a grab bag of wool. The yellow and the purple seem to be silk but I am not sure because the didn’t label the different “balls”. It was a real surprise to win because I never will anything. the wools are great colours and will get put to good use.

    1. Koffipot, the fibers are nice. I think it is pretty much merino but I had wanted to see the blended fibers but didn’t want to order them.

  1. WooHoo Ann lucky girl, that would have been a really lovely surprise and the colors are gorgeous, The only thing i ever won never came, shame to, it was a really nice felted bag. Love your flowers to so have fun at the market πŸ™‚

    1. How sad to win and then not get your prize. Did it get lost in the mail? We are looking forward to the market. I am busy making and freezing little pies and soup to sell.

  2. Well done, Ann πŸ™‚
    The only thing I ever won never came either. Good Luck at the market.

    1. I’ve no idea. It was some forum I used to go on, I imagine they never bothered to send it knowing what I do now, if you know what I mean.

  3. Your flowers look nice with the addition of the lines. And lucky you! That looks like a nice bunch of fiber. World of Wool has such good quality fiber. Glad you’re out of the running of the farmer’s market and just a vendor. That should take less of your time. Good luck.

    1. Thank you Ruth. Well about the less time…..we decided to sell more things. I just made some ginger concentrate for gingerale and some lemon concentrate to add to it if people want. also some Ice tea, I will make it Saturday. we will sell it by the glass. I am making soup too. just vac packed the frozen pea with ham soup and am going to make a curried chick pea soup this after noon. Seems we are not good at standing still.

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
