Thanks to Beerwah Library, I have some of my felted work in the display cabinet. I originally left two shelves empty for other artists from the Glasshouse Country Arts Trail to exhibit. As only one was needed, I went over to the library yesterday and filled up the bottom shelf as well as topping up the original case display.
Here are photos of it now from the front and back of the case.

I am very grateful of the opportunity to show my work at the library, it is a great service they provide and it is always a treat to see other people’s’ displays both in the glass cabinet and on the walls.
When I was in Aldi the other day, I found a couple of pasta drying racks, that look like mug holders with longer, thinner wooden hanging posts. I bought two of them and have used one of them here to display a few of my summer scarves. It allows you to see how transparent they are, where the tissue silk has not been felted.
Black jewellery holder
I also bought a tree-shaped stand that looks like it is for jewellery. It was a christmas red, but I sprayed it yesterday with some matt black.
I’ll use it in my market stall to hang some of my felt jewellery off.
Don’t you love it when you find things that you can re-use in a different way to how they were intended? Creative shopping at its best lol.
Felting workshops for kids over the holidays
While I was at the library I was approached by on of the coordinators who asked if I would like to run some felting workshops for kids over the Christmas holidays. Of course I said a big fat “Yes!”. So now I’m working on a couple of ideas to present for the library to choose from.
This will also be something I can use at other events, where simple felting experience workshops can be presented.
Meditation idea for felt mobile
In the meantime, when I was meditating the other day, I had an image pop into my head of an idea for a felt mobile, that I’m going to experiment with this weekend. When its completed, I’ll post a pic of it.
