I am very much into experimenting again at the moment. I am fascinated by the combination of soft fibre and hard material like wood, pebbles, glas...
After felting a bowl in the morning
I experimented with driftwood. I wrapped some black merino around, didn't have anything else in black, folded a plastic shopping bag small to use as resist and the added more black and finally a thick layer of gotland batt. It took quite a while to make it shrink, but finally I've got this result
Now I will either add some felted seaweed of some felted pebbles, haven't decided yet.
But of course there is already more in my head, I am thinking to felt around another slim driftwood, that it looks like this dead branches which have ear fungi growing on.
During the drive I was looking for our native clematis. It is too early that it flowers, but you never know. Even the wild peach trees have already some flowers on. But of course I couldn't see any. This are photos from some years ago
Well lots of ideas!
