ONE RAINY SUMMER DAY............

...........while on holiday in England, I decided to snuggle up in my cottage with tea, the tellie, and a fun project. It just seemed a perfect day to not shop or sight see. The previous day I had purchased a kit that had all the components that I needed for a felted wrap, so I decided to play with it. I also decided it was a good time to experiment with some lace bits that I had. As it turned out, I had enough materials to make the wrap and a scarf. (I don't know what just happened with the font change, nor do I know how to fix it!) Sorry. Any way these are the results. The scarf has a long length of wispy lace as the base and I think it turned out pretty good.






This is the wrap which has a hand dyed silk scarf base with bits and lengths of lace embedded in the hand dyed wool. Some time this week-end I will put these in my etsy shop.

Judy this is gorgeous. I love the colors, but the texture is just divine. I think the inspiration of beautiful Enland had an effect on you. Wish I could experience that myself.

Absolutely inspiring. You are certainly creative. Combining the felt and the lace is wonderful. Divine inventiveness.

Oh Judy, do I know Zani Lady! It is just full of temptation. I also love the antiques centre at Church Stretton - it's full of very affordable goodies and has to be followed by tea and cake at Berry's coffee house.

Your scarves are beautiful by the way, I'd expect to see them in another shop you like - Ippikin!
