I've had a couple of really productive weeks.. worked on some custom orders, some new designs, some bits n bobs for a Christmas fayre Im doing this weekend... and then WHAM today I'm feeling totally lost. Demotivated. I really dont know what to do - and I know I can't afford to waste a day. Grrrrrr
Instead of moaning I'm going to post some pics of a few of my makes :)
These are my custom orders.. all either at their new home or on their way now..
I had to rush to get the coasters shipped & didn't get chance to photograph them all finished.
|I played with textures on this one.. curly locks, silk caps, nuno silk chiffon (vintage sari), slubby woolen yarn and MASSES of sari silk fibre inside|
And new designs..
|Black, grey & a little white merino with LOTS of extras.. bleeched flax fibre (linen) silk laps, throwsters waste on one side and curly BFL locks on the other|
|I fancied a substantial fring on these.. so I felted 14 cords, leaving the fibres fluffy at one end & incorporating them in at layout stage|
And a bit more colourful & glitzy
|This is the lighter, plumier side.. nice bright sari-sil ribbons and irridescent synthetic organza (it changes from midnight blue to copper depending on the light)|
There you go.. now I'm feeling better :) And as a bonus my latest fibre order just arrived.. Wingham have a nice range of non-standard merino at the moment and they are LOVELY.
OK, I'm off to play xxx
