sweet dreams ...

Today I finished my felting-exchange piece 
for this month.

It is for Caroline, one of the new friends I made 
on this wonderful workshop
with Sara Lechner
(almost a year ago now)

Her theme for the exchange is :


I tried some technique a friend explaned to me
to get some ripples on the surface. 
As a matter of fact, I did two pieces
because I wasn't satisfied with the first one :
too big 
and the colours were a bit messy.
So I made a fresh start yesterday.

... work in progress ...

The ripples were not exactly as I wanted them
but this technique is still new to me 
so :
practice makes perfect


Then today came the rest of the fun : 
stitching !
Using  various variegated colours Cotton Perlé
and the new Rayon thread from Emma's

I called it "sweet dreams"

I put it in the mail this afternoon and
because I had to mail Caroline about something 
I told her not to look here if she didn't want to spoil the surprise.
