Heippa 2019!

I’ve been working hard this year and I’ve gotten a lot done, but on some topics I’ve mumbled 🧐.


💩 I haven't done any live felting lessons in Finland, even though I was planning
💩 I didn't try to finish the "Golden hour" felt board
💩 I didn’t feel the strength to go south to pull the felting courses
💩 I didn't try to sew my husband's beaver gloves
💩 and I was not yet able to buy curtains for my own home
💩 I haven't made any felting instruction videos on YouTube
💩 writing blogs I was pretty miserable
💩 I still make typos in the texts

Well… I'll try to fix things next year. Tomorrow is better than yesterday!
