I also wanted to show you what I made in my felting class. I took the ferry over to Saltspring Island a couple of weeks ago (one of the local gulf islands here off the west coast of British Columbia), and had a one day felting class with Laurie Steffler. We had a loads of fun and learned a lot. Unfortunately, we didn't manage to finish felting our pieces so had to bring them home to finish. For some reason mine hasn't felted properly, and I think I will probably have to re-wet it and do some more rolling. I love the colours and the style so don't want to give up just yet.

I also purchased a kit from Laurie while I was there, and tried something different with it when I got home. I was quite disappointed, because the crinkle chiffon silk base was initially a beautiful bright turquoise, and once I put water on it, the colour all ran out - and it just doesn't have the same punch with a white background.

In my last post, I showed you a pile of roving, silk and pre-felt. Well here is the result. It was an experiment, and I am really pleased with the colour combination and how it turned out. I don't know what I am going to do with it at this point, but will figure something out. It is too short for a regular scarf - but maybe a short button up neck warmer or book cover, we'll just have to see.
