New Year, new ideas...

I always have about 3 or 4 notebooks on the go at all times - for words, thoughts, ideas, notes.  

An idea has been developing over the last few days... here are my initial notes:

...more to follow on how it develops and turns out!

Wonderful Sarah of therainbowgirl also recently dyed some cotton scrim and muslin for me - I use scrim a lot and so was excited to try out some muslin.  Here is the first result - called 'niji' ( 虹 - Japanese for rainbow): the background is muslin felted (with my embellisher) straight on to the batting that I use as backing for all of my felting.

Something else I would like to have a go at this year is designing and making some cuffs and bracelets - not kumihimo but felted, beaded and embroidered.   Need to have more thoughts and make more notes about this first, though!
