As you all know, I quite like putting things in boxes and being a bit organised. I do it with my emails too, including the comments I receive via this blog. This morning I opened the comments file and started to read through them again and was about to start replying, except lots of them didn't have reply-able addresses.....so here is a whole blog dedicated to answers :-)

OMG! No sewing?! How did you cope? Even when we watch tv/movies I still have to either hand sew something or knit! x

Katy was right!! I watched about 40 minutes of the film and then got itchy fingers!!

Yep, most of my favourite ribbons are by American Crafts. What can I say...I love patterned grosgrain ribbon (in fact I placed an order for some today, from a site I've not used before so I shall wait to see what happens before I point you in it's direction!)

Visually yummy! Here's a question (perhaps an odd one): how often do you have to sharpen your scissors?
Ummmm, Never!! My felt scissors were originally my fabric scissors (way back in my uni days) and when they got blunt they transferred to being my paper scissors and now they are felt scissors. I have a lot of scissors, one pair for: fabric, pinking fabric, paper, pinking paper, strong card, felt, packing...oh and a crappy pair for when John says 'can I borrow your scissors' haha!!
So if you have one pair of scissors for each and every job you'll not need to sharpen them...

Hi there,I am so inspired by your cute and yummy felt products! It makes me think about the wonderful things I can make for my little boy. However, I afraid I would need a little advise from you concerning felt before I begin my felting journey. Prior to this, I had purchase some cheap felt from a craft store and I sewed a small heart shaped cushion for my boy for Valentine's Day. The surface of the felt become furry after just a day. So I am wondering which kind of felt should I use? Are the felt that you are carrying on your web suitable? I'd tried checking online but there's quite a few different kind of felt, and the prices varies alot too. So could you help a felt newbie here?
I'm never one to turn down a felt addict in the making!! I started out using acrylic craft felt from my local shop and found it quite pleasing but as I progressed I stumbled upon wool mix felt and from that day I was hooked...it's so much nicer to sew, your stitches can't rip through like they can with acrylic felt, and it feels so nice to handle whilst making things. The other biggest differences for me are the way it looks, I think acrylic felt can be shiny and I don't like that, and I like that I can iron my wool mix felt....sewing always looks better after a good press! oh, and wool mix is great for machine stitching too :-)
I haven't used 100% wool felt because the price is prohibitive for my goodies ... but I'll never say never!
