A Gift for a Lady


I recently came across a lovely blog by a lady called Carol, her blog is on my fav links. She makes beautiful pieces with felt and clay and some other gorgeous pieces of work you should have a look at. I was inspired to try my hand at making some felt and this was my first effort. Ok, so I have a lot to learn, I have since made lots of scraps and have an idea where I'm going wrong but that I also need to buy lots more wool LOL. The wire and beaded heart is one of which I taught at a class at Crafteire this year, they are addictive.
I made this brooch for a lovely lady who came to my rescue last week in Dublin. The hotel I was booked into with my sister and some friends gave our room away and we were literally stranded. This is my gift for her and I hope she will like it =0)TFL.
