a day well spent

Sometimes days are rushing by
 no matter how lazy or busy you are.

But yesterday I can tell you, was a day spent well
amongst some lovely people
a lot of wool, soap and warm water
We felted a pair of slippers
( yes : "winter" is coming nearer )

... laying out fibres, you see that lovely blue ... ?
that turned out to be a disaster : would not felt at all !!!
Luckily it could be peeled of
and another layer of the "right stuff" was added.
In the end all was well, only not the intended colour ...

I tried some spirals, a bit like my Kaffe Fassett clutch

( I made them "inside out" )

After a lovely creative day we went home late, but happy

each one with a fine pair of slippers.

Today I finished the last bit of rolling,
throwing and kneading,
washed out the soap and rinsed them in vinegar

Winter : here I come !
