mandala and the embellisher pieces

13 - 11 - 13
it was such a fun date yesterday
That was supposed to be the name of the post 
when our PC started to act really funny :
it took ages to open, to load sites and pictures,
and was altogether impossible to get a post done.

So here is yesterday's mandala

This year's theme are the Celtic celebrations

We started in September with
Imbolc which is the beginning of the year.
But that felt so akward (it being nearly autumn)
that we switched for the second and third meeting 
to a subject more appropriate to the season,
so yesterday was Samhain.

I just realized that I didn't post
the other two

Imbolc                                            Mabon  
Yesterday I was also working 
on the needle felted "Embellischer pieces"

(ahhh : I really don't know whát to call them)

The mermaid was this far when I left for the mandala group
(doing French knots on the star fish)

And here is the final result today

hand dyed (not by me) craft felt for the cut-out, fabric, tule
magic thread and four very old mother of pearl beads
blue and white pre felt of previous projects
little circle of mint silk (old blouse)
more glas beads
and the embellisher felted blue / green
mounted on a painted canvas 
(size  20 x 20 cm)
