Another little felted picture
Some time ago I was sent a parcel of wool roving from a company called Crafty Felt.com. I hadn't planned to play with it until after Christmas but the wool is so soft and the colours so pretty that I just couldn't resist a litle try out. It is such a shame that the photograph really doesn't show the picture well. The 'dry stone wall' looks very realistic and the cottages look so much nicer than my photo shows. I have had great fun blending roving from my stash with roving from Crafty Felt. You really can feel the difference in the quality of different colours in my stash. The roving from Crafty Felt is really soft and silky while others in my stash are harsher and and not so soft. Both have their place in my work and I love to blend the colours on my carders just as a painter mixes colours on a palette.
