First Felting Workshop

I've made it through my first ever Felting Workshop (that I've led!) After starting off really nervous this morning, it was great! Just a smallish group of eight plus my two kids who came to join in. It went brilliantly, very informal, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and went home with some great pieces.My little man with his High Speed Train!!

Yesterday we had spent the day out looking for little treasure boxes by Lake Windermere (otherwise known as Geocaching! see After sorting out all the clues, we then realised we were on the wrong side of the lake so ended up abandoning that one for the day! However on our way back to the car we found a whole stash of really old glass bottles just lying by a tree. They have been doing loads of tree work in the are and had obviously dug them up in the process. We bundled as many as we could carry into our bags and brought them home to go into the ' it''ll come in handy one day' pile!! Just couldn't leave them there, they look really pretty and unusual, I'm sure we'll think of something to do with them soon!! It was a lovely clear day here and the kids had great fun climbing trees and getting out in the fresh air.


  1. Hey .. we go geocaching ... I've never really heard anyone else besides my family talk about it. Its great! We've discovered all sorts of excellent places because of it. :)

  2. We love geocaching!! It's a great wayto get the kids out for a walk, a bit of incentive!!
