Branching out? - maybe??

While I was sick with the flu I couldn't do any torching, but I was very tired of just reading and sleeping. (I couldn't sleep lying down anyway, but had to sleep sitting up).  Anyway when I was starting to feel a little impatient to get on with something I decided to take up wet felting again.  I had tried it several years ago when I was making teddy bears, and used to make felt flowers to decorate the said bears.  I thought this would be something that I could do while sitting at a table and could also leave at any time and rest.  I already had all the supplies, so that was perfect.  The flowers below are the result - they were lots of fun to make.  I also made some very small purses, but will leave those photos until I have finished up the purses - ie. putting in a lining, a strap, and a button closure.

Wet felted plum coloured poppy.

They are gorgeous! Perhaps you could find a way to combine the felt and lampwork?
