Granny felt.

Granny said she had to do some felting today, to make a tea cosy.
I think she should make something to keep my hot chocolate, hot.
Well the thing is her hands go numb with tingles so she says, and every now and then I need to help her. Well this sander was very noisy, and very shaky it gave me the Colley Gobbel's  my teeth were chattering,
I felt as though I was on a shaking machine.
Feeewwww! !!I need a rest this is going to make me fade away, all this shaking.
"It's your turn Granny."
OK, we made this piece of pink felt! Soap. bubbles, hot water, cold water, slapping it about then hung on the line to dry.
I thought I would just have a look in her tubs of wool: "Does she know how much STUFF she has here. Every colour of the rainbow." It is nice and soft to play in.

Hmm; may be a jacket would look pretty snazzy in this colour.
 Certainly NOT this colour, she can have as many tea cosy's as she likes in this colour, as long as I don't have to wear it....

Few****** that's over. A good drink and put my feet up for the rest of the day. "Granny. HOY  can you hear me. I would like peanut butter and honey on toast for tea. With  a warm cup of hot chocolate. You could bring me my ruggy as well if it's not too much trouble." She is running around like a chook with it's head cut off, she wouldn't even think it might be a little chilly for a bear, who has worked hard all day.
By the way I can hear the peanut butter jar being opened, everything is going well here. I will see you all next week. I hope with NO more chores to do.


  1. Looks like you and Granny worked hard to make that lovely pink piece of felted wool. I'm sure a cup of hot chocolate and some toast with peanut butter and honey is going to be just the thing. Don't forget the mini marshmellows for the hot chocolate.

  2. Hi Wilbur,

    So, you're all shook up, huh? That made us giggle.

    You had a very busy day, and I think that your Granny should felt you a sweater, maybe in a nice burnt orange or similar color.

    Ah, the sound of the good old peanut butter jar opening - music to a teddy bear's ears.

    Is that a glass of wine that you are holding?

  3. Oh my goodness you use a sander to felt your wool?? I had no idea!

    Looks lovely tho!

  4. Making felt looks like pretty hard work to me! Well done! No wonder you need 'refreshments'.

  5. Thanks girls for your comments, Wilbur and I always love to read what you have to say. It certainly was hard work, Wilbur is still recovering. I started on the tea cosy
    yesterday, so I will post a picture when I have finished.


I love to read your comments. Thanks for taking the time
