They say hi ! 咩咩問候 " 你好嗎?"

Ever since I encounted wool felt I find the sheep are naive and innocent.  This is Wensleydale sheep with typical long and curly fleece.  She says hi to you.  She sees you smilling at her.
This is Finn sheep.  He's smart and says "are you watching me?".

Fleece from Wensleydale and Finn sheep are what I love to do recently.  I got the big supply of raw fleece  from Kim last Christmas and still playing around with them.  Just made a "skin" for a journal.
Indeed I got a free premium pack of  journal and  luggage tag.  They're of genuine leather cover and more than pretty it's own.  I just wanted to top it with wool. Below is how it's made.
1. Wet felt the mixed fleece of Wensleydale, Finn and some alpaca
2. 3. After dried, glued with a hot gun
4. 5. Use the original leather strip for closing

Keep the original leather strip closure without any waste.

I like the wool texture and the mixture of the raw fleece is my favourite
A set of gift pack - only the journal was given to my friend in the UK and the tag is for my own use.

I played around the raw fleece and made lots of bookmarks for special occassions.
Keep one for my own diary.  Loving the curly locks with alpaca fleece in the middle.
These adorable alpacas are not to forget.  They're sweet.

  1. oh I love sheep, so pretty they are, your creations are amazing, it must be so satisfying to see your ideas come to creation, just beautiful.Take care Terrie,

  2. Hello Terriea,

    I'm making a leather cover for my notebook now. And I'm thinking to add some felt wool in mushroom shapes on the cover. I hope I can finish it soon. ^^

    1. Cross over of wool & leather would be a nice go. Do show us when you finished it.

  3. The alpacas are so cute. They look like they are smiling at each other. Love the curly wool on the sheep.
    To answer your questions on my Yellow Barn post, I don't know what the white square by the door is. The wheels are from old farm machinery and are used for decorations.

  4. Hey Terrie,

    What great sheep. I haven't felted in years. You make me want to do some with my little Fairy. I have some dyed fleece at home so, I might make it a weekend project to do with her.

    Keep on inspiring us.

  5. Hi Terrie, I am delighted to meet you, and thank you so much for the sweet comments and for following my blog. Your work is wonderful. I especially like the samples that you are creating for your workshop in September. I am an admirer of textile artists. I was going to tell you about Judy at Judy in the Dyes . . . then I noticed that you already follow her. Your method of wrapping natural earthy elements in your yarn and rolling it up reminded me of her. I am so happy that you found me, because now I have found you and I'm looking so forward to following your creative journey. Have a wonderful day, Connie :)

    1. HI Connie, you're just being kind. Yes, Judy is great in dyeing/printing. Your crafty ideas are inspiring. If I can sing I'll sing along with you too.

  6. Looks great - and I agree, the alpacas are very cute!

  7. Beautiful. The smooth texture of the leather and the fun texture of the wool are a perfect marriage. I love seeing what you create! :)

  8. Hello Terrie! I am always wondering what clever idea you will come up with next using your textured wools and fleece. The sheep are interesting creatures, and the alpacas are darling. We have an alpaca farm not far from here. I have been meaning to stop for ages just to check them out, but no longer go by the place because my daughter moved closer to us. They are said to be gentle creatures. I wonder too what the owner does with the wool from her animals. Thank you for sharing. I always love to stop by and see what you are doing.
