I'm back

Hi all,

It's been a little while since I've posted. I had gotten bogged down in making lots for design teams and had forgotten why I liked crafting in the first place. I've also got behind in a few swaps. I have made something for a swap (finally caught up) and need to post it asap.

I have also given my blog a bit of a face lift. I hope you like it.

I have recently gotten my mojo back and am looking forward to posting a bit more often.

I have recently gotten into needle felting. My good friends Kay and Sandra (you can find their blogs here and here) had been on a felting workshop and told me about it. I have since gone on one with them and am enjoying it very much. I thought I'd share with you a few things that I have made.

First I saw these on Pinterest. I knew that I had to make a few and I made them for the children I work at school. My friend Sandra wants one and I may make her one for Christmas this year.

Here is a close up of the reindeer.

Next I saw these and knew I had to make them for a certain crafty spider.

Lastly the workshop I went on was to make teddy bears. My daughter also came with me. 
Here's a photo of all the teddies we made that day. See if you can guess which one is mine.

Have you guessed yet? 

Mine is the one in the very middle 
( there's a bear in front and behind it). 
My daughter's is the one next to it on the left

Well I hope you've enjoyed looking at my felt creations as I said before I have been getting a lot of inspiration from Pinterest. 

I'm off to go and colour as I've recently joined the Kit and Clowder site to hopefully improve my colouring.

It's the first time ive seen anything done with felting that I liked, so believe me that is some achievement lol! I love the robin and reindeer hangings, and your teddy is the best one. Also love the itsy bitsy spiders. Maddy x
