Challenge Day 16
Today has been a lovely day 🙂 the sun was shining and we went somewhere beautiful:
The birds were singing and the brook was bubbling, the daffodils and catkins were out, a few trees were budding and it was warm 😀 I managed to stroll slowly along the banks for a while, pausing frequently to sit and drink coffee from our flask. We have a backpack with a seat which the husband kindly carries for me to sit on. It was a most enjoyable afternoon and due to the rests and coffee I am not too tired, though I may pay the price tomorrow, it is always a risk.
This evening I have only done a small amount of felting again, but I rather like what I tried. It reminds me of the braided ripples of the stream with the water weed and grass – not deliberate but it may have been a latent inspiration.
It is just ordinary cheap acrylic yarn, felted into place and plaited, then felted some more. I left the plaits unfelted at first, which worked too, but I also like them felted in. I might try a bigger bit tomorrow with greens and blues and browns in a more deliberate stylisation of the stream 🙂
