About how a tea set inspired this
There's a new felt project in progress.
I had been thinking for days of a new design for felting but I wasn't completely satisfied with what I had until I realised I was trying to approach something similar to a tea set I had as a child. I was relieved to finally visualise what I had been after and started sketching what I thought were the original motifs of the tea set, just as I remembered them. Of course I couldn't resist and had to dive into old dusty boxes until I found it. It was so nice to see again those little pieces. My drawings weren't exactly as the original design but I felt they had something in common.
In a couple of days I'll post a full view of this new motif. It's made in winter white wool felt on a cinnamon pink base (see colour sample in uppermost image).
