Wet Felting

At last I got to try wet felting! I have tried needle felting in the past, but not wet felting.
There was a craft day, organised by the WI today, and I was able to go.
It was run by a lovely woman called Sarah, who explained it all very well.
My friend Natasha and I had great fun, whilst most people were just doing one colour with a few strands of another, we had to try to do something more creative!
My fav one is my poppies one, I think I am going to add a few more embellishments and then may frame that one!
What do you think??

Well we are back from our week in Spain! It was a lovely week that flew by.
The Villa was lovely, although the boys would have preferred a heated pool!

We stayed near to L'Ametlla De Mar, which has a lovely harbour.
On the Tuesday we set off on the train to Barcelona, it was a 2 hour train journey and then we had to negoiate the Metro system, which we did! The high light was the Gaudi Sagrada Familia, it was Amazing! I have never seen stained Glass like it, we were all impressed. then we took the Metro to the shopping area and I just loved the Architecture ! we shopped and ate then had to get the train back.
The next 2 days we spent at Port Aventura, a big theme park, which we all thoroughly enjoyed, even the shows were good!

Viva la Espana!

So we are off to sunny Spain for a weeks holiday, we are so ready for a real get away holiday. We are going to L Ametlla de Mar , south of Barcelona, and we have a lovely villa with a pool to relax by. We will be about 30 mins away from Port Aventura, which is a big theme park, so that will keep the boys happy(and me!) for a couple of days :0
Hopefully I will have some photos to share when I return!
