Njs purse

A better view of the purse!

Spirit doll & Swingle

Now that Nj has finally received and opened her parcel I can introduce my final Spirit doll .

Made especially for an online friend as thanks for favours received,I knew that ORANGE is her favoured colour,so I endeavoured to stay with that theme...........
the colours I used for the doll reminded me of red sandhills,spirals of dust devils and red gold sunsets,so "she" became my Spirit of the Outback.

The purse/swingle (neck jewellery) was crazy quilt pieced (like the doll) and is large enough to hold a mobile phone and a fantastic plastic.
Not that it shows up too clearly in this photo,but the main embellishment is an ear-ring acquired in Turkey over 30 years ago.

Postcards from Maureen

I finally managed some postcards over the weekend:

The first two were (hand) needle felted as I watched TV as the Wallabies lost the Bledisloe Cup to the NZ All Blacks.

I n/f the tomato red wool on a foam block,cut them to 6by4 inch size,mounted them on Timtex and further embellished the pieces with n/f abstract shapes featuring wool and "Glitz" mohair.

The next three I developed using Australiana themed fabrics and Australian stamps.
Maybe they won't appeal to some people,but my idea was to give a taste of Australia to my overseas friends.
