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 ..
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..
