Hello Hello !!!!

Well Hello everyone, i know its been a while again but i've been a bit stuck and the idea's were just not flowing, well actually they were but getting started was the problem. Not sure why that happens and its very frustrating to say the least , so here i am again and on this beautiful sunny morning ( and my day off work) i've been totally inspired so i'm about to lay out some fibres and have a play.
My inspiration today come from this lady as i just love her work, love the colors and textures, Thankyou Ro.  What i would like to make is a felt and embellished photo album cover for my Daughter In Laws mum. Were both about to be first time Nana's ( so exciting) in around 11 weeks. Jill ( the other nana) is a gorgeous woman and i do know she likes what i make so i'm sure however it turns out she'll treasure it.  When My son married her Daughter i gave her my favorite piece ( actually she nagged and nagged to buy it) lol  as a token of our joining families, Its sits in pride of place in her home and she loves it . This was the piece i gave her.

Now i really want  to make an album cover dedicated to her (our) first grandchild, with embroidery and beads, color and texture , something simple but elegant and my problem is i dont know if i can do elegant lol  I've been thinking about it for ages and  instead of getting stuck in  i've just procrastinated to no end, i get nervous and that frustrates the heck out of me lol   
So anyway thanks to Ro i'm going to tackle it and i'll let you know how i go

Something else that made me excited this morning was one of my Etsy pieces made a treasury list, I'm not really sure what that is lol  but i liked it anyway so thankyou for that to, its spurring me on

Ok Happy Felting Everyone !!


  1. Karen - that piece is beautiful and I don't think I've seen it before. Don't get nervous, just plunge in and get started. I'm sure that you can do something that she will love. Congrats for getting on a treasury list, maybe it will sell the piece for you :)

  2. LOVE that piece Karen! Whatever you make will be lovely - it always is :)
