Looking forward to another year of creative felting! 
In 2014 I will more concentrate on needle felted Nature beings: dwarfs, gnomes, elves.... and fairies anyway. I will offer needle felt workshops for creating your very unique Nature being. Please, watch this space!

Hot water bottel cover

Felting a hot water bottle cover was my wish for quite a while...and here it is! For the base I used white Shetland wool, which I got as a fleece and washed, teased and carded.

Looking for an appropriate design I used brown-, red-, orange- and yellow shades from merino wool for the fiery embellishment. I love the cover and it is so cozy and soft and of course warm.

A fantastic day at GalGael's Christmas Fayre last Saturday

Last Saturday the 14th of December I had a stall at the fantastic Christmas Fayre in Galgael (
Kids and adults enjoyed a day of meeting friends, making new friends, enjoying delicious home made soup, cakes, coffee, tea and much more. All stalls were selling hand made and creatively, beautifully designed items. Galgael had wooden chopping boards, wooden coasters, benches made from recycled whiskey barrels and more wooden products made in GalGael's workshop for sale.If you've missed this fayre,...there will probably  be a next fayre in Spring. You can subscribe to GalGael's newsletter to get all the news in time.
