B`day pressie pics

I can show you what I made now! Moms birthday has been and gone, she has her pressie... think she likes it (hope she does)...
What with both of the kids ill with that fluish virus last week (please dont let me come down with it!!!) and working at the weekend, plus this week is the last week of term & my little one is finishing Primary School - so there are leavers assemblys & plays and all sorts to attend AND this is my last few days of felting & working at home while the kids are at school - theres just no spare time. OK breath...
So, here it is...

Icelandic wool & merino in lovely woodland greens...

Lots of texture...with silk caps, wool & alpaca yarns, fabric scraps, glass beads, even bit of ostritch feather

Thats not all... this little lantern has a secret...

Dwelling deep inside this woodland cavern...

Is a pewter earthmother.
Unnoticed until the LED tealight is turned on, then she glows.

Be well folks
xx

What an enchanting gift!!
(I'd love to know how you decided 'where' to cut the felt at the bottom to insert the bulb, and how you got it to 'stay put', without making the lamp all wobbly and unstable!)

Hi Heather, thanks for the compliment :o)

Theres just the one hole at the top of the vessel... the light is a battery operated LED tealight, which drops in & out easily. They are good little lights, the battery lasts for about 80 hours use & is replacable... and they twinkle and flicker, looking just like a real candle (until you look up real close of course)

This is so pretty! I love all of the texture you were able to create, and the color is perfect! :)

It's so beautiful, I love beading pots like this - the nightlight idea is brilliant, it must bring out the texture of the felt too. xx
