Fabric Postcards

Here are two postcards I made for the AllthingsFabric group. We are sending the cards to US families and friends of those massacred in the university tragedy.

Fibre bowl

Here is an Angelina fibre bowl I made. The more interesting the bowl shape, the more interesting the final product. I had so much fun doing this and it was so simple. I'm off the Opp-shop now to find some more interestingly shaped bowls to use with my fibres.

Angelina Fibres

Had a chance to play with my Angelina fibres today, which I received from truly wonderful "The Thread Studio". Now, even an absolute beginner like me managed to fuse the fibres to make this interesting piece which will eventually become a fabric postcard. I think I can easily get addicted to this stuff (not to mention The Thread Studio!)

Moo Cards

I received my Moo-Cards today and think they are fabulous and I can't believe how quick they were to receive! I will use them when I participate in swaps as a "calling card" and may even trade some if others are interested.

Here is a few of them.

Summer Art Doll

I wasn't going to do this challenge as I have too much on my plate, but what the heck. I just can't say no.

Textured scarf

Here is a photo of a textured scarf I finished knitting. It used three different types of Sean Sheep wool (I am totally ADDICTED to this wool) and was very quick to knit up.

Sea Glass

Had a wonderful day yesterday at Black Rock beach. I collected some gorgeous sea glass, my favourite being the aqua.

My imagination went wild. What if these pieces are centuries old, what tales do they tell, are they from the HMVS Cerberus at Black Rock or from some sunken ship from many years ago. What stories do these contain, being tumbled by the sea for many years.

Or (more realistically) are they pieces of glass left by careless beach-goers, glass shaped by one of nature's best, the ocean.

I have a few collections of sea glass, one from Liverpool UK, California USA and now Black Rock Australia.

Here is a fibre canvas I put together recently. I was once told by a wise woman (hi Mary!) to always put a bit of yellow into work to give it "omph". I agree.
