Giveaway Winner and a Couple of New Things

Giveaway Winner and a Couple of New Things

A couple of weeks ago I announced an embellishment giveaway.  I used a random number generator and I’m pleased to announce Meterrilee, Terri Simon is the winner.  Terri please email me or PM me on the forum with your address.  Congratulations and have fun with the embellishments! I look forward to seeing how you use them.


Since I have been traveling during the holidays, I haven’t been doing much felting.  Although I did finish a couple of small projects before the holidays.

I had been given some nice glass picture frames that have been sitting on my dresser.  I’ve noticed they scratch the wood when moved for cleaning.  So I decided to make use of some “unknown” fiber batts I’ve had sitting around.

I embellished one side with silk hankies and bits of teal bamboo.  The mat is spongy which is perfect for the glass frames to sit in.


Here’s a closeup and then the back. The nice thing is I change the look by flipping it over.

I also keep a bunch of little things on my nightstand so I made a holder for them as well.

The outside is embellished with some silk hankies.


I folded the top down.  It gave it a finished look and a bit more stability.




Now my nightstand is a little tidier.


I hope everyone had a pleasant holiday and a Happy New Year!  Again, congratulations to Terri!

I’ve been having a clear out lately and have spent a lot of time going through smelly dusty bags and boxes from the loft. Most of them contain 20 years of birthday and Christmas cards, clothes I’ll never wear again but can’t bear to part with or cassette tapes from around 1983-1987 🙂  But I got a really nice surprise when I opened one of the bags and discovered 5 huge silk scarves, each about 43 inches square! I think I’ll be doing some nuno felting fairly soon!

I’ve been thinking about Karen’s 4th Quarter Studio Challenge about the Weather recently which isn’t hard being British, apart from tea it’s what we think about most 🙂  I saw this cloud this morning and thought I’d take a photo to add to my collection.

I haven’t quite decided what I’ll do yet, but we often have 4 seasons in a day here, so I’m spoilt for choice 🙂
