Party, a woolly head and a little progress

Me, Chris and the family all went to Loch Fyne on sat night (after a heavy friday night and a sat spend having many hair of the dogs!) to celebrate the many many birthdays there are in the month of April and May for us. I managed to make four felted cakes in time for the occasion (although didnt manage to find a camera to take a pic of them in time, it all got rather rushed at the end). They went down very well though and I didnt have one left spare to keep for myself :( looks like I will have to make me a new one. I will try and get a pic of the two my mum stole in the week as they are different from the one below.

Apart from that I have just been getting on with felting some shocking pink merino wool to be my Download festival hair. This is just done by cutting it to the desired lenghts, putting them in some hot soapy water and hand rolling them on a towel. As you can see they are very bright, and they are going to be so comfy and snuggly when they are in my hair!

And finally, now I have managed to sort out the cakes and that fiasco is over I have finally managed to get back onto making some more progress on the Mrs Darcy Cardigan. As you can see from the pic, im still only half way up the sleeve from the post prior to this, but at least I will have time to finish it now.
