Quote of the day

In the rhythm of the needles

there is music for the soul.

a felted bag

Last friday, I spent a day at Mieke Recour's atelier, making a felted bag.  I really enjoyed this, although it was pretty hard work.  We started from scratch : first we made a design,  then we choose our colours and worked our way through the many layers of wool, with the aid of soap, and hot water.

It was funny to see that we all had a different bag in the end.

this is how mine ended up.

our hands were sooo soft afterwards !

Mieke came to help with the details

We enjoyed the day very much, it was well organised and we were all proud to go home with the great bags !
