Once I had made Ruth's card I thought I could sit back. I have now realised December is slipping away rapidly, so I had better crack on with making more cards for the 'Chosen Few' as I call the handful of friends that get a handmade card.

My December fiberness is taken me down the road of needle felting into a bought cardigan. I think it's finished!! it's one of those projects that can go on and on, but I may add one little blue flower on the opposite shoulder for balance.The flowers you see on the left go over the shoulder and down the back a little way.
I have a question for you soap felters. I felted some last year in preparation for a church sale. When I pulled them out for the sale I found that some of them had molded. Just a little bit.. I was able to scrub it off mostly Do I need to make them just before the sale, or did I not store them correctly? I think I had them in a plastic bag.

The sweater looks great Carol Yes the soap can take long time to dry. I had soap I thought was dry so I popped it in the storage box but when I pulled them out two days later they felt damp. I usually leave them to dry on the wracks several days and I had only let them dry for about 24 hours.
