colour it in number 2 & mod felt








hmmm, catchy title, not!

after all the excitement of buying my embellisher, i've barely used it in the last couple of weeks. after i finished colouring in my second colour-it-yourself poster (now available in the shop,) i was inspired by the colours i used to create a little 'try it out' piece with some gorgeous coloured felt from wonderful etsy seller kirsty of fuzzyfelt. i'm so happy with how it turned out, it was a real trial piece where i learnt a few things about the capabilities of the machine and how much to allow fabric-wise for shrinkage etc...now off to try another idea before dashing and picking up youngster arth (who was 4 the other day, how time is whizzing!)

i've got other news farm-wise (cluck, cluck) but will take pictures and show you tomorrow.

I'm tempted to get one of your posters to stop me from going stir crazy over the next few weeks as I feel less and less like going outside!
Love the felt thing too, the colours are fab :)

Wow that's a serious amount of colouring in! Takes me back to Doodleart when I was a wee snippet of a thing, anyone know what I'm talking about? Kept me busy for hours! Great poster, I'm sure they will fly out.

The felt looks incredible. I don't know how you can do anything else with something like that around to tempt you!
