As part of my birthday present this year my art buddy Dot booked her and I into a felting class with Elizabeth Armstrong.... what a fabulous day we had. When we entered Elizabeths studio it was like walking into Aladdins Cave... lucsious fabrics, threads, fibres... a riot of colour. I was in seventh Heaven. Her studio is such a happy and colourful environment. My camera card was full so couldnt take many photos but my dear friend Dot said I could use some of hers for my post. (thanks Dot!!!) Elizabeths beautiful studio were we had our workshop.
What a wonderful experience .... I loved all the layering of beautiful colours rovings, gorgeous fabrics, silk threads, soy threads and much, much more. But.... boy were my arms sore after the class. The rolling...... 900 times!!!! But once you see the finished piece, it is all worth it.
Mmmmm... these leave a little to be desired. I obviously need to practice these as they are rather tatty looking (look like they've been out in a storm!!!)
As part of my birthday gift Dot had commissioned one of Elizabeths handmade felted dolls...isnt she gorgeous. Such beautiful colours and sooo lovely to hold. Thought I should share her with you all.
Also for my birthday my sister Lee and another girlfriend of ours, Jen, had lunch at Donovans down by St. Kilda Beach. Perfect day, perfect food, best friends ...just the best day. After a most delicious lunch we took a walk down by St. Kilda Esplanade.
