Obsession

This year, I was very organised about my Christmas wish list ,making it clear that I really didn't mind what I received as long as I can make felt with it. I even (rather naughtily) kept slipping the name of my wool supplier into conversations.

What can I say, Santa was extremely generous and sent half the contents of Wingham Woolworks my way. I thankfully received a couple of kilo's of wool, some of it pre-dyed and blended with silk, a hat block, an amazing book full of felt hat designs, a tussah silk brick, silk gauze for nuno felting, a wash board (yet to be tried), an Ashford felting board, a felters rolling pin (a must have), India's magical book, olive soap, bubble wrap, and so much more.

Lets just say that I am very happy and have enough goodies to fuel my woolly obsession for a long time to come. Thank you Santa!

Hello Jasmine - I'm so glad you stopped by! I thought I had added you to my Blogs I Love list and I hadn't - arrggh! I couldn't for the life of me remember your blog's name, so now I have made sure I've put you in my side panel. The necklace you made me gets so many compliments, you'll be pleased to hear. I did what you did before xmas too and told all my santas that I only wanted art and craft supplies. Well, did my santas deliver! Lol.

PS. I love your solstice photo - BEAUTIFUL!!!! Magical...spiritual!

Lucky you! Santa must have thought you'd been very good last year to leave you such a wonderful pile of gifts. We hope you have fun with them.
