Out of Chaos - Felted Treasures and more

I figured out the camera, the computer and the internet (to the best of my ability and levels of sanity) ... and have listed my first items on madeit , an aussie site dedicated to the sale of all things handmade.

My workroom is a never ending story. In order to finish this or make that I purchase this and purchase that and I think in fact, I may have added to my stash!

A needlecase, I washed, carded and felted some Alpaca fibre and went to work.
