WANDERING SPIRITS



When writing my Rag Rescue blog the other day, I mentioned that I never have time to do some creating of my own. That got me to thinking that I needed a day off from the business to have some me time. Yesterday I managed to get out my felting machine and create. I didn't have anything in mind so just added bits of wool and fabric here and there.
I sat for about half an hour looking at the design to find something interesting in it. I must admit I often work like this and usually they turn out to be my best works.


With my box of wonderful antique and vintage threads by my side, I began to bring the picture to life. Spirits of a by-gone age.


What a wonderful day I had and today I feel so refreshed and ready to tackle all the mountains of work I have to climb this coming week.

I love the 'spirits' and the colours you have used. Glad your spirits were lifted as you worked on them and you were able to get back to more serious things feeling refreshed.

Ooh! I love this Sandie. I can see Donald Duck and a very attractive fairly like figure clinging to him. This is just what I enjoy doing and when I'm cleaning the bathroom, I have to go and get my sketchbook before what I see disappears for ever as I rarely find them next time I'm there :)I have also done a few with my Embellisher.
