I felt a little down one night, so I went to see my friend after work. She soon sorted me out - she got out the felt and got me working my arm muscles!
She had bought me a notebook so I can do some journalling and had intended to make me a cover, but decided I could do it myself. The above arrangement is the wool and tops laid out in my chosen "design". I went for really bright colours because I love them!
Then there was rubbing with hot water and soap, more rubbing, turning, rubbing, turning rubbing, then rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling.... When I got home I soaked it in a little vinegar to get rid of the soap and laid it out to dry.
It is still laying out to dry. It IS dry, it's been dry for ages... I just haven't had the time to make it into a book cover yet!
Felting is so good for stress release, and I'm sure it must count as exercise?
