November was rushing by
and the last month of the year is nearly upon us !
Time flies ...
That was what I thought
when I received, a few weeks ago
an invitation for a reunion.
of a looooong time ago,
was put on FB ...
and it started the search for others who were in that class
in 1971 !
Some of the children of those days
which are adults of 50 now
still live here in this village
(like I still do ...
and that very young teacher was me)
Yesterday I met with a lot of those "little pupils" ...
I had a hard time recognizing some
and knew others right away !
(one of the "girls" even came all the way from Rome
where she has lived for 25 years)
IT WAS REALLY FUN !
I finished and send away the four extra felted jewels
that were on commission
The end of November also meant
that I needed to hurry finishing my piece for the new
felting exchange !!!
The theme was
and it had to be bigger than the postcard size
of the last two years :
20 x 20 cm !
The start with some prefelt and a cobweb bit
There were more prefelt bits for the fish
and on the back I put two more layers for strength.
In the end it turned out the prefelt for the sea horse
was absolutely too thick ...
with the stitching finished ...
a bit fuzzy
but definitely a sea horse
Tomorrow it will go in the mail !
