Good morning???

Good morning people, how are we doing today?
I hope this post finds you all well!
So much for spring here...18 degrees this morning. Ahh..and yes snow again, not a lot but enough..lol. According to the weather forecast more to come, some body out there must just loooove Idaho...lol...right!


Above and below this part of the post, I am showing you what I am working on right now. Lilacs, needle felted with wool, hand dyed soy silk and hand dyed silk. The background is a black commercial glitter felt. I have to say that felting on this works great, just never try to pull any of the felted stuff off...you get holes...big ones..lol. That's how I ended up with this shape ( being very..very honest here). Going to solve that problem with the background fabric that I found in my stash, lucky me!!! As shown here in the photo below.






My meditation quilt that I started is not ready for pictures yet, better said..it feels like I should keep this one to myself till it feels right to share it. Does that make sense to anyone?
The next picture is of a bracelet made out of recycled old jewelry and some charms that I made with diamond glaze. Man that's some awesome stuff!!


This one I am going to wear, the next one might end up getting sold..lol.
Ok my friends, thanks again for all your support and inspiring comments!
This girl is going to her ' dungeon' (my hubby named my studio..lol) and play and torture some more projects. Please stay tuned..planning on some more tutorials very soon!!
Have a wonderful great day and go and create!!!
Love you all,
Andrea.

Andrea ~ Your felted lilacs look wonderful and you know there are not mistakes, someone once called them "flopportunities" = Love that name! The background shape is very graceful and with your fabric...can't wait!

Wonderful charm bracelet, a nice combo of recycled and handmade!

A meditation quilt sounds quite wonderful and special.

I am so sorry it is so cold there. Ahh I would have to hop a plane to somewhere warm. I do not do cold for very long. However you have been very creative with your time. I love the felted piece and the bracelet is superb.

Andrea, Thanks for the birthday wishes. AND yes I would love to trade a fairy slipper for a puzzle pc. if you want. Just let me know and I will make one for you. You know I was a follower on your blog and all of a sudden you were not showing up. So I have put my name in again. Sorry for the long absents. I like all the things you have been doing. Your crazy quilt purse is gorgeous. The slippers are darling. I have a fairy living in my garden, she likes them too. She has been so cold with all the snow lately. Ah it can all go away now. Let me know. Warmly :-)Sharon
