I finished 8 more angels and 3 birdies and finally sent a large parcel to another gallery yesterday: . The lady has rang me and was so excited about my birdies! Well I hope she can also sell them - my babies....

waiting for christmas

can we fly your dreams?

I am so grateful to Cornelia from Cornits Filzzauberschule to teach how to make angels. I am more and more developing my own style now and I have already in mind to develop them into fairies of some kind, fantasie people of Lord of the Rings or Avatar.... I would really love to meet her in person when I am in Germany. In fact I would love to meet a lot of european felters, their work is so inspiring!
I am taking part again in the adventskurs and now, that I am free - not bound to any coop, it is so much fun just to explore and experiment! All this surface enhancing was not my thing originally and it takes some time of course. But it teaches me patience and it calmes me, it is really pleasant.
I get also a lot of practical inspiration/advice from a friend here in NZ - Suse. She is so practical and has great ideas to minimize the effort when felting. They have a large farm and she works very hard, but still finds time for her craft work and she has always a good word for everybody.
Lots of plans in my mind, but first I have to sell the stock I have left, so many scarves.........
