Have you ever tried felting woolen jumpers?
How hard could it be even my mother could do it and she never even meant to!
Last week I purchased 2 woolen jumpers from the opie, popped them in the hot washing machine, twice, then into the hot tumble dryer and all that was achieved were 2 very clean jumpers!
The labels read pure wool and wool and even had the wool symbol.
Back the opie went the jumpers and another 2 came home, more hot washing I even had them in the sink with boiling water and good whack from the wooden spoon.
Yes they are slightly smaller but no where near as small as my mother used to make them!
Next thought, boil them on the stove top, yes witches and cauldrons spring to mind!
Suddenly Sue was on the phone, totally unrelated matter but I think I should wear my aluminum hat again, she had been though all of the above and the best advice she gave me was to buy the woolen jumpers that say "dry clean only". Must remember to take my glasses with me in future.

JaM - Where would I be without You?!
It was late in the afternoon when I finally got the chance to take a couple of photos.
Although this piece of sculpture is a prop and not part of the exhibition, I love it.
Where would we be without our besties.
Joining Jody and Jam this week.

We have been without internet and phone lines for over a week now but tonight we are back, apparently the pixies have been playing havoc.
I've been busy in the garden and crocheting and generally mess making!
I've missed not being able to see what's going on in the world but I have survived.
Off to see what everyone else has been up to.

Take one grey cardi and a T shirt.
Cut the front off the cardi and stitch it to the back.
Now it has tails.
Cut the T shirt into strips and sew around the edge of the cardi.
I liked the wrong side of the fabric and edge rolled back nicely.
I added detail with felt circles, fabric and buttons.
I cut the cuff off the cardi mainly because my arms are never that long and added some interest with felt.
You can never have too many cardis in winter.
