    sorry felting speak they were wetted and rubbed until holding together well but shrank well during the rolling process used to harden the felt Meanwhile I decided to try some dyes from the kitchen cupboard and you can see the results for yourself The turmeric was particularly successful After researching further I ve decided I don t have a lot of time to complete all my own natural dyeing so have taken the decision to use some other sheep fibres within the felt to achieve some colours If I need browns I ll use Shetland fibres and have sourced some pre dyed Blue Faced Leicester from Wheeldale Woolcrafts to use for blues reds and purples To add further texture I ve decided to add Teeswater and Wensleydale curls into the mix All of these are native British breeds of sheep The only colours I now need to dye the fibre in are greens and yellows I think I ve found a great yellow already but would like to add another shade to this and I need at least three greens My thanks to Sylvia for offering to go plant gathering and to Yvonne for pointing me at some great sites on the internet For anyone who d like a little more information try Country Lovers and Wild Colours Roll on Friday when I ll visit the reservoir and I m also hoping to receive my curlew then P S We went to Bradford Industrial Museum at the weekend and in the rag rug exhibition was you ve guessed it a polar bear To drive my husband totally nuts we then found a picture of a crocheted hamster And he thought he was kidding Posted in Curlew Diaries No Comments Chuffed to bits Friday May 1st 2009 Some while ago I put myself forward to be involved in the Flight of Fancy section of the Grassington Festival The idea is to involve artists in decorating a fibre glass curlew I was chuffed to get the email telling me I d been chosen by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority to produce its curlew The Park chose me because it liked my idea to use moorland to shore the curlew s natural habitat as the base for the decoration This year is the 60th anniversary of the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949 and the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority YDNPA is organising celebrations some of which are to take place at Grimwith a reservoir surrounded by moorland in North Yorkshire It s a reservoir I ve walked around on numerous occasions and that I can strongly identify with The YDNPA asked that I include some Swaledale wool fibre in the felt on the curlew as Swaledale is the predominant local sheep breed By the end of the first conversation on 30th April I was so excited and my mind was buzzing with ideas I couldn t wait to start My original idea was to appliqué flowers across the
