We are definitely in the full swing of holiday crafting now. Sergei's present is coming together slowly.
My good friend Loreli, who is also slightly wool obsessed came over recently with a garbage bag full of fresh off the sheep, fleece... A portion of it she had washed prior, and we sat and talked felting for a while as she attempted to card through with a couple of regular o'l hairbrushes, and hey guess what , it worked! Haha expensive carding brushes, in yo' face!
Anyway, she was a sweetie and left me some to play with and it turns out it is PERFECT for rocks and dirt for the base of my playscape! I love all of the shades of grey and brown, and that it still smells super strongly of lanolin. Mmmmm... sheepy.
So, I've begun to construct the land on which his woodland creature home will sit.
