Now you may ask
What am I going to be doing with these Sari ribbons?
Well I decided to jump into the deep end and learn
a completely new skill
and take a course in Diane Cooks on-line Workshop
You can read all about it here
and also at
Artful Gathering Workshops where Diane will be
running this course.
Now you all know that I am a textile, fabric and fibre artist
primarily and so to take this on has put me in the
raw beginner category but, hey
what have I got to lose?
I casually mentioned this to a couple of friends
and the next thing I started receiving
bits and pieces that I could
incorporate into my
little parcel all the way from Bornholm
from my dear friend, Dorthe,
including this most gorgeous card made by her
a dear little package containing medals, beads, crucifixes,
keys etc. etc.
and just have a look what else was included?
One of her handcrafted angels
with the most beautiful face!
Isn't she just so sweet?
and all the way from the U.K.
came this box, wrapped so beautifully in a hand knitted doiley
(not shown - oops - sorry!)
from another dear friend, Liz of Lululizinlalaland
and these amazing little boot buttons
as well as
more sari ribbon in a beautiful soft mossy shade of green
and last, but not least, some very fine narrow vintage laces
which can be added to the sari Heart Strings
Such a delicious combination of colours called
with a touch of pink added.
Thank you both dear friends for your kindness and encouragement!
It is rather nice to know that you have those
friends that believe in
what you do!!!
Now I have to say so far I am keeping my head above water
and hopefully very soon I will be able to show you
my very first attempt at jewellery making
of the materials which I am just so at home with.
It feels very strange holding jewellery tools instead of
sewing threads, fabrics and sitting at my
trusty sewing machine!
Hope some of you too are stretching your wings
and venturing into new fields of creativity -
I know this will be fun!!!
Thank you everyone for coming to visit me -
I so love hearing your comments -
Each one is so appreciated!
and I will endeavour to reciprocate as best I can.
