We really are very lucky to have such a talented bunch of creative Halfpenny Home friends, one of whom is Rachel, who has agreed to do some felting workshops at the studio over the coming months. Rachel brought in some of her work to show us and we were so taken with it we thought we should share it with you!
I particularly love the felted flowers, including this beautiful poppy, which can't fail to cheer up even the dullest day!
These colourful felted mats are just gorgeous and are what Rachel will be teaching at her first workshop at Halfpenny Home.
I love the pretty spring colours in this one.
On subsequent workshops Rachel will be showing us how to make one of these beautiful felted lariats.
This lily lariat is my absolute favourite and Rachel has even embellished it with pretty little bronze seed beads.
And what better way to keep your teapot nice and toasty!
As luck would have it, the new issue of Oh Comely has recently arrived - perfect to go with that cuppa!
I'll be putting the latest copy of Oh Comely on the website over the next few days. Meanwhile, I had to share with you a shot of the back cover, which I think is just lovely!
Do get in touch if you'd like further details of Rachel's felting classes at Halfpenny Home. The first one is on 30th April and you need to do the first one before moving onto the other projects.
