We are in December now and I still have some flowers in my garden. Rudbeckias are the bravest and the brightest! I can't resist I "painted" them again, and it's not the end of affair!

Sunflowers at last!

I've made quite a few items with images of sunflowers but was never happy with the result. This tea cosy seems OK so!

Sold

The last picture is of the tea cosy with a teapot inside!

Snowy Tulips

The tulip is a new flower in my "watercolour" experience nad it shows I'm afraid! I definetely need more practice. And still it's lovely flower with a strong architectural feel about it.

Sold

The blue colour is a bit strange considering tulips I agree, but blue/white combination is so beautiful!

Deep Night Blue Scarf

I buy the most of my wool from internet suppliers. With all the positive points there is at least one disadvantage - you can't see the real colour. It could be a problem if you want to find wool matching the silk fabric. I've got it wrong at least twice! Fortunately this time I was lucky, the wool and scarf complement each other nicely, as you can see on the last picture.

Sold

Pictures are not great, I am afraid, I can't do dark colours properly... P3 P5

Is it Boho?

I've made this scarf quite a while ago but had no time to show it here.

Sold

I like it because it's so long and very light still, 80 grams, could you believe it? The colours are very delicate and the feel of it so cosy! But what is a style of it? I decided to attribute it to "Boho", because of informal ruffles and ... I just feel it this way!

Mittens!

I am in mittens now!

Sold

The new (for me!) ways of laying the wool - diagonal instead of more traditional vert./horiz. - produce more flexible felt. The mittens keep the shape better and they are so light! This petrol blue ones are just 40 grams!

Very Very Long Scarf

If you are thinking about scarves now is the right time! You need one of them as the weather is definitely going to get cold. I like rummaging through my stash of silk fabrics all the time and this is my choice. I wanted to make a very long scarf so that you can wear it as "a european loop" but it looks like I got carried away a little bit!..

Scarf "Lavender Mist"

You might think that I am doing nothing and neglected felting completely! It's not true I am working hard really! At first I set up an Etsy Shop and even got 3 (three!) sales last week!

Now I would like to show one of my latest scarves. I've named it a Lavender Mist because there is such a fine blend of lovely and delicate colours - pink, lilac, lavender and it creates true misty effect. It's not bold but very soft and feminine...



I also add a few silk pieces of silk in the same colours to create some texture.
