"Creative Felt" : My Article Is Published !



Sue Bleiweiss, editor of Fibre & Stitch, afforded me an opportunity to write my first ever article about my passion for making felted bags. Her invitation came just at a time when I was longing to try something a little bit different. My article,"Creative Felt", was written for the current issue of this wonderful e-zine and Sue decided to release the issue early- today! If you are not familiar with this fabulous e-zine publication - take a look. Sue offers lots of great free projects on the website & the zine is filled with great articles that are certain to get your creative sparks flying.I had to chuckle as I re-read what I had written - my bag styles have already changed somewhat - maybe that is what evolving is all about huh? Most of the bags I make now are somewhat larger - and can comfortably hold knitting, sewing tools or even act as a purse. I continue to be obsessed with wools & felting. I enjoy finding new ways to use the luscious wools that I now get to "pet" so often. Working with Sue and Terry was a rewarding, fun experience! I may have the writing bug now ! I think what I REALLY need to do though is get back to some quilting !! That's the thing I like about making my bags - I get to quilt them too -so I don't have to feel that I am abandoning my first love of quilts!

Congratulations - haven't downloaded it yet (just got back from the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate with goodies to dye, books to ooh and aah over (several Jan Beaney & Jean littlejohn (signed)) and various bits of fabrics and assorted necessaries - thought I'd tell you before you asked. Look forward to reading your article later.
