Finally getting something done!

Well it has been another very busy week. Despite giving up the day job last week I have been run ragged since then with contracting work for my old company and an old acquaintance who needed an extra body. So not much time for being creative! I know it is the plan but there are still bills to be paid so I will take the work where I can get it!

So there was not a great deal of creative work done lately. I have finished a jewellery commission for a Christmas gift, but I can't share it here as the recipient sometimes visits :) . I have another order for a necklace and earrings along the same vein so will share after Christmas.

I am also work in a silk appliqu├ęd wall hanging which is in it's very early stages and will share when there is more to see.

So what exactly am I going to share?

Last week I went to my local Sue Ryder shop and picked up a few pure wool jumpers:
I popped them in the washing machine on a boil wash and then into a hot tumbledryer to felt them. Then I could cut them and make flowers and my mobile phone holders:

I have sold a couple of them already!
