Thanks Bella, my injury is a bit of a mystery.
The doctor can't quite figure out what's wrong, so I'm just resting up ad taking lots of fish oil. My hunch is that it's a cartilage problem being an ex-dancer and ex-swimming instructor.
Also, I've just learned that lesson: there's always potential to learn more. Even in unlikely places.
I've been a wet-felter for over 10 years now, and have had the opportunity to learn under some very technical tutors. The other week, a friend gave me a children's craft book saying "you're into this, right?". Although she meant well, and is such a sweety, the book was flashy, tacky, with poorly made felt.
However, I still decided to read it cover to cover.
Although there were a number of mistakes and steps skipped, I was surprised to discover a fabulous way of distributing soap onto a flat felt project, that would help to create really even and beautiful felt!
So it's very true Bella - learning can occur is the strangest of places.
