My 'Box of Delights'* is ready for off ..actually its gone..to The Platform gallery for Mirrorball their Christmas show.
It took a while to get into the swing of creating things but I feel quite happy with the overall package.
I love piles of things, boxes of stuff, rather like folded quilts.
They are all peeping out trying to get you to look at them.
Clamouring for attention.
Allow me to introduce a few.
Its great to be re-acquainting myself with my stash of Harris Tweed. This time I've added some felt shapes. (You may have seen one of these before)
As usual I've found that Harris Tweed has hidden depths and a piece I dismissed previously, because it didn't match my idea of HT, is now the love of my life.
Just look at the colours here.
There's another colourway but I don't have much of any of it sadly.
Just enough for a little purse or two and some hearts and circle brooches.
The round brooches take longer to make than you would imagine.
I tried them with big beads.
I especially like the blue ones.
The Autumn sun provided the light for these pictures.
I was doubtful it would be bright enough but I think the glow is perfect.
There's always a bit of fluff where you don't want it though isn't there?
*Please excuse me for judging my own work to be delightful..I just like the turn of phrase
