This is what my work table looked like today. Not much felting going on these days...for a number of reasons. I needed to search for a new supplier of Fleece. I need fleece that's from New Zealand which is sometimes difficult to source when you live in Newfoundland and Labrador. I placed an order with RH Lindsay I had recently changed suppliers but the fleece was from South Africa...beautiful to look at and touch but it was almost too perfect or just overprocessed. I like fleece that has a few bits and bobs in it, (twigs and grasses etc.) and the best fleece I have ever had comes from New Zealand. Another reason why I'm not in full production at the moment, is because I received a Grant from the Newfoundland and Labrador Craft Council to take time to develop new work. I want to start working with pattern (again) and move a little away from felting. One thing that holds me back (I think) is that I don't draw. did I mention this already? I can't believe tomorrow is the first day of February. Happy Birthday Heidi. I will write again soon.
