it took some time ...

Everything alright now ?
Well it took me quite some time
to think it over
and to get things done
And how about those three blind mice ???

you see :
not blind anymore !
(all the other mice have black eyes)

There was more done of course.
From Jana I ordered the PDF for the book cover she made some months ago.
I would have known how to do it myself
but I very much like to learn the last little bits from others
(and I think Jana makes breathtaking felt work)

this was the first one
Inside is a A5 size "dummy"
(that's what a book without print is called here) 

The worst part of it all 
(besides the cutting into the half-felted piece)
was drying the finished felt on the book
so it would definately be the right size !!!
I wrapped the cover ánd all the pages in cling foil
to avoid the book from getting wet 
Pfffffft !

And there was a bag with fishes
in a different shape this time
(no strap yet)

Lots more to do

  3. Wat een gezelligheid bij jou op de vensterbank!
    Die muisjes zijn zo schattig geworden...
    Ik vind Jana's viltwerk ook altijd zo lekker vrolijk en kleurig, om blij van te worden hè?
    Fijne zondag, groetjes van Mirjam.
