Photo of me wearing the beret I felted. This is my first attempt at a 3D object and it worked out quite good though I did have a few near disasters happen. All good learning!
We camped at Tawharanui over Labour Weekend. The weather was gorgeous and we had a prime spot in the campground too. DH took around 350 photos (most of which will be deleted) so he was pretty happy about that. There were some dotterel pairs on the beach which featured strongly on his memory card but also the sunset/sunrise scenes too. You can see some of his efforts on his Flickr.
The children love camping. They also like playing Angry Birds on the iPad.
We spent a bit of time looking around the rock pools and seeing the sea life there. It's a marine reserve so there is quite a bit of interesting stuff there.
Even though we're camping it still seems that someone likes to visit Mum & Dad's bed!
This one tends to roll off the bed in the night.
Back home I went to another felting class this past week to learn how to make bags. These were the sample ones the teacher had on display. I really liked the red one.
These were the bags our class made. We ran out of time to make the cords for the handles so I still need to do that.
This is a closer look at my one.
With the flap opened. It has a little pocket inside for a cell phone.
I'm really enjoying the felting thing.
Yesterday I went to a Stampin' Up! Extravaganza and made some very cool things. :) It was nice to get into paper craft again - I've done so little of it these past months.
I have also been sewing - it always annoys me how much I underestimate how long a sewing project will take! Anyway, done now. More planned. Just need time.
