I received this lovely wool felted post card called "Poppies from Hoorn" from my dear friend Inge from Hoorn, Holland. This is Inge very first wool felted post card. Isn't it truly lovely? Note the wee mouse peeking out of the curly grass. The poppies are made from Silk Rod unwrapped with beads added in the middle. Inge added wee beads and embroidery flowers all over the post card. Inge told me that there is "Wild Poppies" growing along the sides of the roads from Hoorn to Amsterdam and she thinks they are so beautiful to look at and is amazed that they survive all the fumes from the cars that travel theses roads. Thank you Inge for this lovely post card.
I also order two lovely stash bags from Helen Suzanne Alexander who lives in the Isle of Lewis, Hebart UK. Helen is a Mix Media Artist who creates truly beautiful "Spiderweb Felt", oil paintings and other pieces of art. When I saw Helen's spiderweb felt on her website, I knew I needed to have some to be able to see it up close. Helen created spiderweb felt in many shades of colors especially for me. Thank You Helen.
Helen stash bags also included lovely beads, wool roving and all kinds of fibers to use in creating my own spiderweb felt one day. Thank you Helen for your generous Stash Bags.
Next week DH and I are off for a wee drive around Michigan. I am scheduled for a wool felting class at Kim's "The Flower Lady's Farm and Woolery" in Levering, Michigan. I am so looking forward to seeing Kim again and taking her class. So I will have lots of photos to share with you all when I get home.
Take care all, Hugs Judy
