Karen B. Goes for the Challenge

On Thursday, I set out to complete a challenge from Jen to produce a work in fibre that looked like my calendar picture.  A tea cosy seemed exactly the right shape!  With help from Klaudia I was able to complete this project in one morning.  Our guild members are so full of enthusiasm, great ideas and helpfulness that almost anything is possible!
 
Here I am with all my equipment and Klaudia to help me felt a tea cosy

On a background of white roving, I began to layer my design.
The process involves a little soap, more hot water and lots of rubbing.
The finished product.
