A Blog Award!

I am delighted to receive my very first blog award from the lovely Gill at Gillyflower. I'm not sure how my musings and ramblings have quite earned me this, but it is a pleasure to receive.
So it is now my turn to pass this award on to some more deserving bloggers. I will include this in my post later in the week as I want to do my chosen few justice.
I have been playing with those lovely polystyrene eggs! First, I loosely needlefelted some merino wool onto them.
Then I wet felted them and put them on my radiator to dry.
A little felted egg rainbow!
So now the plan is to decorate them next weekend. They are very tactile, everyone who sees them wants to hold them.
I'm really pleased with them so far - they did look a bit tacky in their polystyrene form! The back up plan, if all went horribly wrong, was to take them into school and let my class decorate them but I'm afraid they've turned out too nice for that!
Hope you're enjoying these first few days of Spring.

  1. It is posts just such as this one that make you deserving of the award!!!!
    The felted eggs look beuatifuk just as they are - perfect, lovely rainbow of colours! Its amazing how the water and heat tranforms them - have never done any felting but I can see from this project the fascination and satisfaction of it.
    have a great day Becky!

  6. Well done Becky: I love coming over to your blog and your award is well deserved! Those eggs look beautiful even before they've been decorated so I'll look forward to viewing the finished version. Oh, and I hope your lesson ob went (goes?) well - I now train teachers and I'm still subject to being observed. It must be something about our profession...Liz x
