WOYWW 563 – Felt Flowers

Morning everyone. I have been up for a while, but got sucked into the Facebook ‘hole that has no end’. My crafty table today has some felt flowers that I cut out on my Cricut Maker and now waiting to be glued or sewn together. I might do some embroidery on them too. They are for the anniversary celebrations for a local chapel, but that has been postponed until later in the year, so no rush now. The fabric mat for the Cricut is also sitting there with a lint roller next to it (delivered from Amazon yesterday). I saw a tip that it would help to get the last few pieces of felt fuzz off it. It has also lost all its stickiness, so will either wash it with soapy water or get a glue pen on it.

We are not self-isolating strictly here, as neither of us are in the official list, but our life is fairly isolated anyway. The only change for me at the moment is that all craft workshops/clubs are cancelled and obviously we cannot fly off to Spain. I am going out to do some grocery shopping today (need some fresh veg etc before the next booked Tesco delivery on Saturday), but going to a local village shop instead of a large supermarket. There should be lower risk of being annoyed by those panic buying, and also good to support a small business. One of the towns near us, St Davids, has a fruit/veg shop, so going to see if they are open too. My days are just as full as usual with attempting to keep our house clean/tidy, walking the dog, cycling (probably just indoors now, as I don’t want to risk an accident that requires hospital treatment), online business stuff and, of course, crafting. We also enjoy watching ‘Homes Under The Hammer’ each day!!

Stay safe everyone, and KEEP CRAFTING!

  1. Morning Ali. Hope your local shop has just the veggies you need. No, travel wouldn’t be a good idea at the moment – so stay safe at home.
    Take care. God bless.

  2. Glad to hear you are all doing well. I have a couple of local shops as well that I will be using instead of the big grocery stores. I have to self-isolate due to asthma, but I’m happy here at home with my craft room, piano, kitchen, and neighborhood to go for walks down to the water! It will all be so relaxing, really! Stay safe, have a great week, Lindart #26

  3. It’ll be nice to sit awhile and embroider some detail onto the flowers…lets hope the celebration hasn’t to be too long postponed. Glad to hear that ‘isolation’ isn’t a punishment! Keep well.

  4. Hi Ali, I had a Cricut, but for whatever reason I couldn’t get used to it. I had some felt letters to cut, but it just wouldn’t work. Mr M bought me a Scan & Cut the Christmas before last, and I seem to have got the hang of that better, although I haven’t tried to cut felt with it yet. I’m not self isolating as I haven’t even seen an official list of who should be, but I am now working from home until further notice. Stay safe, and enjoy your crafting! Have a lovely week Heather xx #13

  5. Glad to hear you can get out and about, and are filling your time with constructive activities, Ali. Like you, I am not deliberately self isolating because most of my time is spent at home anyway. Sensible to do your cycling indoors to reduce the risk of accidents!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  6. Hello Ali, sorry I am so late this week – life’s got in the way. Because we are retired I didn’t think that isolation would impact as much as it has but we’ve spent an inordinate amount of time just phoning around to cancel appointments, etc., only to find they had already been cancelled. Our calendar looks very empty now. Luckily, I have no problem finding things to do to fill the time but I will miss our trips out and about. The little flowers are lovely. I can see that felt must leave lots of fluff on your mat so good luck with the lint roller. Take care and stay well. Elizabeth x #31
