rain ! .... no moon (but still a bit of silver)

Ahhhhh .... it's a pity :
there is no full moon to be seen 
because it's raining here.
( well : you can't win them all )

But here is another bit of silver

( Although I didn't hear that my little felt-exchange piece arrived safely,
it was in the mail this weekend,
I'll show what it looks like )

For this person I had to use naturals and grays.
For me, as a very "colourful" person ,
that wasn't very easy,
so that's why (among other things)
it took me quite some time to start and finish it.

It wasn't very clever of me nót to measure the beginning ...
I started a bit to big actually,
for we agreed that the pieces would be postcard-size !

Therefore I had to keep felting to shrink it to the right size
but thát way I lost a lot of the original detail
which then caused me to do a lot of embroidery.
( not so bad, because I like to stitch )
In a drawer I found this lovely bit of silk-and-metal (silver) fabric
that seemed just right for this piece !
And then ..... lots, really  LOTS  of French knots,
with wool, silk and silver thread.

I hope she likes it

Man is drawing again

Mmmmm love the colours !

Daughter made good use of some Noro and sock yarn leftovers :

pouches for semiprecious stones
