Where to begin..

When faced with a BIG box of pretty new fibres to play with :D   I actually felt spoiled for choice, so decided to work on just a couple of colour combos at a time..

Orange and pink - with a little purple silk..

Gold silk caps stretched over the resist before laying
down the  merino makes it pretty inside  :)

 And mallard green with black and again purple silk ..

Palm side
Outer side

 And a larger than normal Tree of Life bag
More on this one soon

Which I have yet to finish!  

The weekend and week so far have been super busy.. Its Rachael's 14th birthday tomorrow (Wednesday) so at the weekend we embarked on a mother & daughter project.. a new pair of slippers for Rachael, it went really well - I took lots of pics and will be blogging later in the week.  Now I'm doing all the momsy stuff that goes with an upcoming birthday.. plus I need to get the leather soles cut and sewn on for her by tomorrow ... while fitting in as much felting as I can.  Have to say I'm thoroughly enjoying all of the excitement.. but I can NOT believe that my baby girl is 14!  It feels like just 5 minutes since I was 14.. 24 years ago.. now thats scary!

Right.. I'm off to work on a pair of slippers then decorate a cake..

Wow! What a lot of pretty projects, Deborah! Enjoy the birthday preparations/celebration. You're right to take your time and savor every minute with your daughter. My 'babies' will be 21 years old this month. It does go fast!! :(

You sure can pull off that hat! Beautiful!! The bag shape is very nice and I love how you fashioned the handle. Happy birthday to your gal, and yes I agree time seems to fly by in the blink of an eye!
