If you go down to the woods today...

...you might find some felted mushrooms. Yes, another kit is looking for a kind volunteer to try it out and give me feedback. If you have never done needle felting before and would like to give it a go, just leave a comment below or email me at ansnagbreac at gmail dot com. I will put all the names in a hat, pick one out in 5 days and send the winner a Needle Felt Toadstools Kit.

All I ask is that you make at least one mushroom within a week or so of getting the kit and send me feedback on what you thought of it.
The kit makes several mushrooms...
Couldn't help throwing in another shot there of the little fungi basking in the lovely March sun!

Advice in progress...

I have been working on these hankies recently. I asked friends and family for advice, something they would follow themselves, or wish they followed. It could be anything, from very general advice to detailed tips.

I got a lots of different responses! I have been embroidering them, including bits from myself, on old handkerchiefs over the last while. I like the idea of having a reminder of something important that can be carried in your pocket.
Here are some of them...






(That one is a detail from a larger piece.) Now I just need to get my hands on some more handkerchiefs!
