Where in the world...

Someone asked me not long ago, if I did anything else as well as make felt. At the time, I thought making felt, part-time teaching and family and friends, with a little travel thrown in when possible, might be enough to keep one person busy.

Later, I decided, maybe I could just try my hand at collage...

Another Portal - a hat this time.

In creating pieces for the Portal series, I've enjoyed using the mixed greens from a Finnish wool producer, called Pilku.

As the colour Indigo is no longer available from Fibre Fusion in Victoria, I attempted to create my own version by laying two layers of black wool over a bed of mixed blues from Pilku. Did it work? You be the judge.
