Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

An Apple a day keeps

 the doctor away... not sure that stands if you tried to eat this felted apple.

Last night at the 'Upcycling' class I go to, we continued with our theme of Picnic and finished off the cup and saucer we made last week. Same principle as the 'cocoon' we made last term, except this time instead of felting around a pebble we carved a mould from polystyrene and felted around that. Not sue if it is quite finished yet, but I came to a bit of a standstill last night so ...

I had a few minutes spare and I made a felted apple as well - cute eh!

These bits and pieces are all going as part of a collaborative project which will part of an exhibition at a local well renowned Gallery in September.

Must keep the apple out of the sight of the chickens, they are eating everything in sight, for Chickens who have eaten nothing but Layers Mash for the 70 weeks they have been alive and have never seen any other food, daylight or the outside world they are settling in incredibly well and there is a huge visible change in them already, amazing since we have only had them a few days. I intend to take photos of them every Sunday so we can record the change in them... Hopefully you will see the difference in them as well!
