Johanna Basford and twisted felting needles

IMG_0309

This little chap says “hello!”. Just started another goblin and I tried for the very first time the spiral/twisted needle. Oh my… very efficient, I love it! This is going to be my needle of choice, no doubt about that. It gets firm very quickly and the needle leaves no poke mark.

When it comes to felting supplies, Heidi Feathers is my favourite supplier. She also has some lovely starter kits.

It feels so good, felting again. It’s a nice break from having to study the theory book for the driving license.

 

 

 

 

 

I came across some wonderful coloring books the other day. Have you ever heard of Johanna Basford? I think her designs are totally original and exquisite:

Some of her fans send her  pictures of their colored books, I think it’s a great gift for people who aren’t too self confident about drawing yet but would like to explore more the possibilities of colours. I insert here some of the results but you can see more on Johanna Basford’s website ( Johanna Basford ):

I wish you a nice creative time, whichever form it takes!
