Felt Dabble Day at Schoolhouse Arts

All four of us, Margaret, Debbie, Nickie and myself, were involved in the workshop today at Schoolhouse Arts.
The day started off with making wet felted beads. To help get them dry, we started to dry them in the oven on a very low heat,before moving them outside to dry in the sunshine. The group was then divided into two and it was then onto either dry felting, making a stone or a fruit or using the embellisher.The weather was so good, that we ate our lunch outside in the garden

It's hard to think, looking at the photo, that two hours later we had a terrific storm! The groups swapped activities after lunch. The last hour was spent doing more playing on the embellisher or decorating the felt beads.

When I got home, it was a bit of a rush to get ready for Kezzys birthday bar-b-q. As Alan started to cook, so the storm started! The rain did not stop the fun, and the meal was finished off with a white chocolate fondue.

Lovely felt beads. How are you going to embellish them? I will pop back to find out and see how the bag turned out!
