Felt

Felt trolls – so common here in Finland. Most of what I see I don’t like -but these I like! They are needle felted by Katharina Wikholm, who also makes jewellery from polymer clay, and objects from papier mache. Katharina showed her felted figures at Stundars a couple of weeks ago. Aren’t they lovely?

I don’t felt myself. It’s one of many decisions I’ve made: I can’t do everything, even if I’d like to. For the same reason I don’t make pottery, I don’t embroider, I don’t make bobbin lace, I don’t do wood work even if I’d very much like to. Not basketry, papier mache, origami… I could go on for a very long time telling you about crafts I don’t do, but would like to do.

Summer is finally here. Who could’ve guessed? After this awful spring, the coldest and longest during the last 100 years, summer is really here. We’re happy!

    Yes, I’d agree Katharina’s Trolls are very cute/special – they’ve got great faces. I don’t felt either or do a lot of other things I am interested in, so I can identify with you. Our summer has also arrived except we had rain yesterday, and that is quite unusual for June. We may get some more and snow in the mountains too. Thanks to global warming. Thanks for sharing.
