Art Share meme

A while back Emmy of Cramzy's blog said she do a swap with me............ This week this embellished/needle felted card arrived from her.
Emmy does such beautiful was she that first introduced me (via the Internet) to Embellishing machines and now some time later I have my own!

Emmy combines needle felting/needle punching with FME;
there's felting with fibres and fabric which appear to have been cut to petal shape and a background of soft metallic mesh for added definition.
The machine stitching at the base puts me in mind of some exotic lily.
Thanks Emmy.........I haven't forgotten that IOU! Posted by Picasa

Random acts of Kindness

This little "house hunting angel" arrived in my letter-box yesterday.
She was sent to me by a young friend in Victoria to assist in my/our hunt for a new home.
(after 22 years in this little patch of Paradise,age and health have forced a change)
Catherine's angel came with a note including love and prayers to find a new home.
The angel has her own special charms adorning her:

A heart you will love
A flower bead for a garden
A key for your new front door
A bird-house for the birds that will visit
A fish and shell for the ocean views you both want.
"Meow"-- for the cats that share your lives.

With wishes and blessings like those,we will surely discover a new dream.
Thank you Catherine,for caring

Those of you that have visited my blog "for a while" will appreciate how Catherine has covered the parts that make my "whole".
I can only hope that "one day" I get a chance to meet with Catherine in the flesh....she is special!

How good is this!

You go outside to bring Madam Puss in for the night,and there above your head is Mother (Ringtail) and two kids.
It emphasises all the more,how much we will be missing when we leave here in two months.
(It doesn't bear brooding over.....already it feels like Paradise Lost!

On a more positive I mailed off 17 of my required 23 fabric and fibre Postcards to Art2Mail/Group 18 Swap.
I'm not going to bore you with 17 pics! Suffice to say the main theme was birds that visit my back-yard-------King Parrots,Galahs,Sulphur-crested Cockatoos............. Posted by Picasa

Joma's block from Jo

Firstly you see a close-up of Jo's work on Joma's block
(at this stage you'll need to go visit Jo's blog,because emails and Jo's blog are NOT reacting favourably with me tonight.

The second pic shows the block in its entirity(is there such a word??)

In my archives I have a pic of Joma's block before we started embellishing-----I attempted to add it as a "reminder" but Mr Blog does not like me tonight,so I will have to add it as another entry. Posted by Picasa
