Doing work without actually doing any work.
This afternoon I was selecting coloured fleece for specific animals and putting them in fleece pouches, so that whenI'm ready to make that animal, the colours are ready to go.

So far I have colour schemed
- Bogong moth
- Cairns Birdwing Butterfly
- Mountain Blue Butterfly
- Royal Spoonbill
- Numbat
- Ghost Bat
- Boyd's Forest Dragon
- Fairy Wren

I still want to try some of my own dyes, and have been collecting plant specimens to use.
I probably with felt some white/cream then dye, because I'm afraid that if I dye carded fleece, I may not set the colour properly and lose the brightness of it duringthe felting process.
