Older projects

A beautiful change in weather today - Its been raining!!!  AND blowing a gale...
so much cooler!
So - in between my lessons and having a small break -
I was looking for something - as you do - not sure now what it was now ...   LOL..
But I found this tucked away in a box with all my skeins of embroidery wool
Another UFO

Some wool embroidery for a pin cushion, using some of my felting of my very own' home grown' sheeps wool -  I even remember his name .
Raymondo and he was a Moorit Corriadale sheep and a lovely light faun colour. 
 The wool is felted onto some gauze.
I guess I should put it together and finish the other one too
Makes me want to felt some more - I still have bags of my sheeps wool in the container at the back of our block.
The lovey pottery sheep I brought back from Scotland...my favorite place in all the world..

Back to my lessons

You should finish that pink one. They are beautiful and how cool is that; wool from your own NAMED sheep!

Beautiful Joan - felting is great if you want to work out some excess emotions ;0)
The added beauty of using raw fleece like this is the lanolin in the wool will keep the pins and needles from rusting
You really should finish them, it would be worth it

These are so sweet. I love that you remember the sheep's name and the contrast of the fine embroidered flowers and the natural felt.
