Welcoming a new blogger


Just a quick post to say go meet Katie at Katie's Place.
I met up with Katie after she added a comment on CQCrazy and hopefully we'll be seeing her as a member of Chain of Hearts also.

A Frangipani from Belle

Today's mail delivery disclosed this needle felted postcard from Belle.The lady in question has only been needlefelting for a month or so......
so imagine what the results will be with more practice!
I think I'll just give her my supplies and send commissions direct to her!
The way she has blended the rovings in the petals gives a really life-like effect.Can you see the crystal dewdrop glistening just above the darker shade on the upper central petal?
Thank you Belle! Posted by Picasa

Finished at last!

The March AJQ,which was originally planned as being the February project is as complete as I can manage!
This is the "mark two" version;hopefully I'll complete the "markone" in a day or so,and publish it for comparison.

This one,I'm calling "Stagnation"------

As you may remember from earlier postings I'm attempting a series based on various aspects of the Murray River which is accepted as an Australian icon.
Unfortunately the river is not too healthy in parts these days,due to irrigation demands,climatic conditions and encroaching civilisation;so this was my attempt at portraying the patches of blue-green algae that occur sometimes in the Summer season.

Has it worked?? Posted by Picasa
