another present

My sister-in-law turned seventy in September
but then they were not home, this Friday we will visit them.
Finding a present was a tough one, I made already
several things for her, so ......what now ?
Last night in bed I suddenly knew !
Colours she will like I think, and long pieces of bubble wrap

 ... lots and lots of ringlets layed out on silk chiffon ...

After wetting it all I had to make sure the inside of the circles was
free of stray fibers ( sorry : bad colours in this picture )

After rinsing and rolling in a towel it was ready for the picture

I hope she likes it

( and they don't follow my blog (yet) so I am safe showing it now ! )

Tonight our drawing group had the last Mandala night for this year
in Februari will be the next one.
.... no time for pictures yet : ... later

  1. This is just lovely! The colors are so vibrant and fun... anyone would love such a wonderful gift!

    Is the silk chiffon the base for what I assume are wool fibers? How are the fibers held to the silk?

  2. So beautiful...the silk chiffon makes a lovely base....she will LOVE it I am sure.
