Autumn and winter Collection

Doesn't that sound like I should be in the Paris/London/NY Fashion week?? :P right...
Cold weather is here to stay and so are the new items I've been working on for my shop. I enjoy handfelting things...balls, boxes, shawls, bags...or whatever else! Don't stand too long beside me or I'll cover you with soap and water! :) and start rubbing... no wait...
Anyway, the first two items are ready.

First we have here Mrs Neck Warmer... it is a handfelted scarf made with soft white merino. Soooo warm! I've made a button hole (word in english for that??) and added a handmade (by me) ceramic button in the shape of a heart. The glazing on that heart is gorgeous... deep red but if you look closely you see the little cracks and swirls of deeper red and orange.




Im glad I could combine too of my passions: ceramics and wool felting.

Yesterday I showed you I was working on some beading... well, here is the finished scarf.
Cream and moccha (sounds like a cup of coffee!) merino wool and strands of white silk, nuno felted onto white organza. I was talking yesterday about little windows through which you could see the organza. Well, they became modern, free hand sewing flowers onto which I added some beading... but it is all very subtle and soft, nothing screams here... very... ' me drinking a warm cup of coffee looking through a window in a sunny winter day'... very cozy, warm, soft and... just nice!








Well, they are going to my DaWanda shop later tonight!

I know you've heard this before - on flickr - but these are GORGEOUS!! Very classy. Absolutely love those hearts.

The ceramic heart is wonderful. The color is so rich and bright. It is so nice to be placed in front of the scarf.

I like the color of the mocha scarf. It is very soothing.

Thanks Charlotte... I only have on more heart, smaller... if you really want it. They are a bit heavy because that is clay... I could make you more if you want.

Thanks Lily! Im glad to read that they are nice, I was doubting myself for a while.
