Spring Crafts

Enough of thrift, time for some craft. This amazing looking wall mounted sheep's head takes needle felting to a whole new level, don't you agree? It wouldn't have looked out of place at the recent London exhibition celebrating all things wool, Wool House.
The lady who made this fantastic piece is blogging here. You can see some more images of this work and some of her very cute Dachshund, Higgins, who gets up to all sorts of mischief.

If you have been inspired by the new TV programme The Great British Sewing Bee, there are some very nice small Spring sewing projects over here . Like this T shirt bag and oil cloth lunch bag, a bit different from the norm methinks.
