I have had a good felting week and have finished a lot of projects. The dragons egg is on its way to the USA, the happy car is now with its new owner and my friends baby is admiring her bee mobile. Now I need to find something else to felt! Any ideas?

I'm famous - well sort of! An article was written by a friend and it has appeared in the March issue of Taika, a finnish craft magazine. It is in Finnish but my friend Elina, assures me it says lots of good things about me!!
I feel now things are slowly coming together with the 'business' - the website is almost ready, not quite though , still needs a few tweaks. I still have loads of forms to fill but I am gradually working through those. Soon all will be official (I hope!)

I have been very lucky with my health and only recently when Aleksi was diagnosed with diabetes did I really appreciate the Health care system here in Finland and also in the UK. So it must be really tough when you haven't got that system to catch you if you fall. Holly from oceans of fiber http://www.hollyeqq.com/is having some medical problems and needs some support, especially financially. Sandy from http://homesteadwoolandgiftfarm.com/ is running a sale/ auction of fabulous yarns and other treasures to help support Holly.
My contribution is these two - Brad and Angelina, needled felted and wearing the latest in woolly scarves made with holly's wool. Please visit Sandy's website and support circlin' the wagons for Holly.

Well, I have had a few productive felting days, snowmen, dinosaurs, easter eggs, rabbits, a wool inspired picture and bees! Keeps me on my toes - I quite like having a few projects on the go at the same time as needling dinosaur legs for hours on end can be exasperating, especially when you are trying to get them the same shape and size! Today will be scarf for snowman and a caterpillar, plus some dino spots if I get the time. I'll post some photos when there are done!
