It was a lovely , sunny 28C and a great day for felting, fibre, visitors and spinning. We had a really creative, happy day yesterday full of activity and inspiration. Our felting workshop produced some interesting pieces which have yet to be finished. Our fibre challenge had us on a real high. We loved seeing what had been produced. More of those things later in the week.
