We are a creative homeschooling family of 3. I have homeschooled my 2 boys from the start and we do lots of unit studies and get out into our beautiful part of the world as often as we can.
As the boys are getting older and we are getting busier I find I am posting less about our journey but will continue to update occasionally.

Felting Frenzy

I have been interested in felting for ages
and have done a little bit with the boys in the past.
Last weekend I went and did a feltmaking workshop
and I have well and truly caught the bug.
It is such a magical transformation
to take some wool and turn it into a piece of felt.Here are some pretty pieces I made
being modeled by the beautiful little unicorn
my lovely friend from Lillipilli Dreaming recently sent me.
These are felted river stones, so soft and yet so hard.
felt is so versatile-
these bright magenta sushi beads were fun,
they might be nice buttons as well.
I love the sculptural ability of the wool
and I love the texturesand the colours.This is a cover for a journal and it is made
with untreated merino and decorated with roving.
I think I am hooked.

You are a clever cookie.
Does it take long to change the wool into felt?
