Christmas cards at the ready.

My apologies to all my blogger friends for not looking and commenting on your blogs these past few weeks. There has been a huge family crisis and I just couldn't get my head around anything. Hopefully the crisi will ease slightly next weekend and I will be going away to sell at my bi-monthly antique fairs. For details of the fairs see my
Rag Rescue blog

What has helped me release some of the tension in myself has been my felting. I decided to make my Christmas cards this year and above are some photographs of just a couple of them. I also made some patchwork ones and embroidered those.
It si the first time that I've made my own cards so I hope the family and friends will enjoy them.

Peace reigns in the house this weekend as my husband and I are on our own so I'm going to spend some time surfing through all your blogs.

Something for myself for a change.

Now that my new website
is now on line, I decided to have a little light relief and make something for myself for a change. I've used a lovely Victorian black silk scarf and wet felted it leaving little circles of silk free of wool which of course puffed up during the fulling process.
It is lovely and warm and keeps out the draughts from these autumnal coastal winds.
