'Paintbox' Needlebook

'Paintbox'  Needlebook
Recently I purchased a needlefelting tool.  I played with it for some time.
Using threads and leftover scraps of fabric of various kinds I came up with this.
I love the smeared effect of the various colours inside the covers.
It reminds me of a paintbox.  Hence the name, 'Paintbox' Needlebook.

It is as light as a 'feather' or almost!
Finished with a pretty pink button for closure I thought it would
make a pretty gift for my daughter-in-law....
and so it did!

Fun with Felted Jerseys/Sweaters


What more fun can you have, than sitting in the sun, playing with felted jerseys.
Cutting small squares, well not exactly square! 
Cutting different shapes, colours and textures and wondering where all of this
will lead?
A journey of creativity!

Placing the felted pieces on the background. ( Another  felted piece.)
I like the textured look and feel of these .

I placed my work on a piece of red wool coating.
More stitching, and a piece of blue lining to finish

Words of St. Francis of Assisi ............ take a look!

"He who works with his hands is a labourer.
