After all the beautiful sunshine days
you could say the weather today was
In fact it rained alllllll day long.
What better way to use such a day
than to do someting that you should have done
a long time ago
Ha, ofcourse there are a lot of such things ...
(like cleaning up the room I'm sitting in right now)
but in this case I mean
making this month's felting-exchange piece.
The theme was "parts" and "uniting"
The idea for it was long in my head,
but every time I wanted to get started
something else happened.
Four parts in dark lilac and three shades of turqoise,
at the side the colour of one part runs along the side of the next.
Four spikes in the same colours, put into opposite coloured parts.
Then I cut open the top layer.
I liked it this way, but ... as I have to send it in the mail
I opted for this version.
HA ! then onto the next !
The theme for next month was a bit awkward :
(well, the exchange goes on for a whole year ....
and some people do love autumn best)
So, in the middle of the green spring : autumn !
First some different coloured spikes, then, they were covered with "autumn"
All felting by hand, otherwise the veins would have disappeared.
And then :
cutting into the surface of the veins
to reveal the colours inside
Later in the afternoon
I sewed some seed beads and stitches
on the "parts" one
Tomorrow both pieces will be in the mail
and I hope each one of the receivers likes her piece.
