Eggs!

I’ve been spinning and spinning the time turner I was given for my birthday but IFaulty time turner can’t manage to create even one extra  hour in my day. Back to elbow grease and self discipline I guess! I’ve been feeling a little flat about all the felt making and social media madness recently, I’ve been working hard and don’t seem to have much to show for it. So today I am focusing on the successes.image

I finished my first round of eggs this morning and I’m pretty pleased with them. These eggs have taken a little longer to hatch than I had hoped but I now have a clutch of about 40 done. Some of these sets will be gifts for family and friends, but I hope to get some on etsy and maybe find one or two fairs to take them to before Easter.

Usually I get all of my tops from World of Wool. Their roving is just gorgeous, lush wingham wool workscolours and great to work with. This time though I used a bag of Merino tops from Wingham Wool Works. A friend recommended them to me as she had used them on a felt making course and I have to agree that they are equally as lovely to felt with and good value too.  I love these pastel shades (not a phrase you can expect from me often), pics of the vivid brighter shades to come when I have finished the next batch.

While we are on the subject of Easter gifts I am also in the process of making thislittle guy as an Easter hunt jackpot prize. Depending how long he takes I might make a few.
