I love close-ups of natural structures especially wool fibres.........

some commercial yarn entwined......

Colours are so important for our sanity at this time of year, November, when the days are shortening fast and you sometimes don't see the sun for days..................

Landscape course

A fabulous time was had last Saturday indulging in one of my favorite subjects: Landscape! Participants from Cardigan to the South Wales valleys spent the day learning how to transform wool fibres into a landscape at Carmel community hall near Crosshands, Carmarthenshire. It was a happy mixture of beginners and some with experience.

Mountains, rivers, meadows, fields, rocks!

This one gained a tree by the end:
