Sweeties


First there were sugared almonds...


then there were chocolate limes....
and recently..and I had to make special felt ..
for these : caramels!
Or perhaps they are chocolate eclairs? The sweetie chewy kind, not the cakes.
Someone has asked me to make some caramel brooches and its not something I would have considered, but now I'm very glad I did. I love the velvet on the butterscotch felt.

Another person has asked me to make a piece along the lines of 'where the cricket sings', but with some purples in it.

So far I have some pieces of felt ready for stitching.



They look so much better in reality than in these photographs.
But  I love them as they are. Felt so surprising and delightful.
Prefelts and other wools added to a prefelt background. 

This afternoon I have listed LOADS of things in my etsy shop.
I suddenly looked and realised it was very low in stock.
My bargain pieces are the Harris Tweed brooches which are lovely (sorry!) 
                                                    They are like sweeties in themselves.

But the photographs aren't so great.

See?
 Its not ALL about dogs!

I don't know how you could even consider cutting that beautiful felt up - it's just gorgeous as it is!

What a gorgeous post - full of glorious colours and textures. Lovely 'sweeties', and no calories!Your new felts are so beautiful - I could just pin them on my wall and enjoy looking at them each day.
Love to Hetty - I'm sure she is settling into her new surroundings and getting lots of love and cuddles.

What gorgeous colors, I went to your easy store and was taken back at all the lovely items, how to decide. Your work is fantastic.

Lovely chewy caramels.

I love the abstract qualities of the felt before you cut it up. I'd forgotten about chocolate limes - we have an old fashioned sweet shop with sweets in big jars - must go gets some!

Love them! But I didn't see a place to click and be on your ETSY store. I did see some empty spots that my server won't let me see right now... I'll try again.
Hugs!

I do see what you mean about sweeties - especially the chocolate limes!! A little shot of Hetty would have been EVEN better, but I guess you didn't want to gild the lily?
