I am blessed with many good friends, so when my lovely friend Margaret had a big birthday recently I returned the compliment with this little..book?
Waxed brown paper on the outside and a handmade cord.
Inside a kind of folding panel covered in shibori dyed teabag paper.
It opens out to green and then again to pink.
Pink doesn't photograph well..
but I'm sure you can read the words..
which will be familiar to some as..
....an Irish Blessing.
I photographed it today at our monthly meeting of the Felt group.
We are blessed to have a lovely hall in which to hold our meetings and today we were blessed with good food as well as lovely fellow felters.
Look at the little Felt Christmas trees!
Our lives are enriched by the people we love.
(In memory of Chris who my husband and I lost from our lives last night )
