I won a giveaway - all this lovely merino wool!
Thank you to Marilyn Lott for sending me the wool. Marilyn is a qualified needlework teacher, a member of the West Country Embroiderers Guild and she runs workshops to encourage people to try new techniques. Here's a link to her blog Torbay Textiles.
Marilyn recently taught the making of felt cords and this is a lovely example of their use.
