To Felt or not To Felt?

That is the question. Whether 'tis nobler and more sensible to sell this lovely heather and grey tartan wool blanket on ebay or whack it in the washing machine and max out on soap and heat to produce some delicious felt? Dilemma compounded by fact that the blanket is in fabulous, completely intact, hole-free condition. Seems so brutal to felt something in such great shape, but as is; doesn't suit my decor. Hmmm....decisions decisions...

Beautiful Blanket Face

'Tis the season to curl up with felted wool and get handstitching. Madeleine Millington does this to great effect with her hot pastel palette of enticing projects and workshops. I recently attended a workshop. Simple, soothing and something I actually continued when I got home, rather than stuffing the item into a cupboard from which it could silently reproach me for months, if not years. Recommended.
