I am done

Now I have finally finished my entry to juniforms exhibition and lottery. This is what I started out with.... Some wool in white, grey and red. Some vintage lace, a vintage table cloth and red glass pearls.




......and this is the finished result.







It`s a pair of wristwarmers made in wet felted white wool, decorated with needle felting in grey and red. The old tablecloth became a little application and I finished it all of with a frill of vintage lace decorated with red glass beads. I was going for a christmassy folkloric touch. Sort of!


And do you know what?
This evening I recived a winning of my very own. Anna at Helylle came by and gave me the beautiful handspun yarn that I won in her lottery. It`s in an amazing emerald color! So beautiful! I was so taken by surprice, her suddenly standing there at my doorstep in the rain that I didn`t even invite her in! Now am I a lousy blogfriend or what? All I could think of was that I looked like something my cats had dragged in ....and what would she think of me.... Silly isn`t it! But hey thats me! I am a silly kind of gal! But I will make it up to her I promise! I have long going plans on luring her over in the false pretence of a meal and a chat and I won`t let go of her until she has teached me to spin too!

How come I think that it would send her running in the opposite direction?


Anyway, thank you so much Anna! I loved it! I think I will use it in a wet felting.... or try needle felting with it....or....


Take care

Jeanette



And Anna, I am not usually that impolite....

Åh... så himla fina!
Lyckliga den som får dom!
Själv "vann" jag en fin tavla med en nyckel och några visa ord på!
Vad "vann" du för fint?
Den här cyberutställningen var riktigt kul!

Oooo, så underbara! Helt fantastiska. Nu måste jag ner och rota i lådorna... Jag vet att det finns spetsar nånstans och långa remsor av kaninpäls..! Inspiration är en underbar sak, eller hur?
