When I found out that super stitcherette Kathleen from Murgatroyd Hoots was going to hold a workshop about making a felt bird brooch I knew I had to sign up....and did I regret it? No way Jose.
Held yesterday within the vintage heaven of a cafe, Cafe Salvation near Ledbury, Kathleen's workshop turned out to be a wonderful and relaxing way to spend a Friday morning, doubly so being in the company of like-minded crafty folk.
After running through some needlework stitches as a warm up, we were let loose on Kathleen's enviable stashes of felt and needlework silks so that we could choose our birds' colour combos. True to the saying, time did fly when we were having fun and before I knew it, the morning was over and we had over-run into lunchtime. So, I took my bird brooch home to finish off and here he is:
Why not pop over to Murgatroyd Hoots to see us all in action (and concentrating on trying to thread needles!).
As for me, I can't wait until the next installment!
