Do you have friends who help you to be better than you would be on your own?
...who 'call you out' on things that you could improve/are doing wrong/should change (now!)??
...who help you to grow in a myriad of healthy ways?
Well, I do, and this year, I wanted to make her something amazing for Christmas...so that she would know it.
Inspiration struck when I discovered Jenne Giles' rose scarves.
They are simply luscious, and her website (http://harlequinfeltworks.com) has some of the most beautiful and innovative photographs that I've seen yet in 'blogland'.
Unfortunately, this was 'before' Cardatrice (my drum carder), and I have to say that this project removed the last pitiful doubt I had as to the wisdom of acquiring one!!
I spent 8 hours just needle-felting pink and then deeper red roving on my foam pad.
The felting itself went quickly, though, once the fiber was all in place.
...and I think it will please my friend.
