Visiting Poland, family and friends.. and some feltmaking tools

I finally got to visit my country,
Having visited my auntie and my mother I decided to show them how to bake a traditional sourdouchg bread. These types of bread are created using a starter and a rye bread. It is necessary to use special baskets for these, such as the following one






this is the bread as it has been baking in the oven, and the result had a very crispy crust and moist inside.



Recently I have been making some more scarves, and I loved the fluffiness of the wool, the delicacy of silk and the weather outside.





The whole job lot of the felting sushi mats were used during the worksops in Primary Schools.


Today I received my latest feltmaking tools, the wooden heads and the rolling pin, it is slightly large this one!

 These were organised by my dear friend Ola who is a feltmaker in Clonakilty, Ireland.


And this is my newest collaboration with Galway based basketmaker. 

All the best from slightly cool Poland!

Il y a quelques mois, j'avais pris un cour de feutre. Si cela vous intéresse de voir ce que j'en ai fait, le travail est sur mon blog * les tricots de Béatrice De, couture et bricolage *. Il faut remonter pas mal. Patience.
