As My Sweetie and I was setting in the sun room today admiring this glorious lovely sunny warm day I ask him to give me a number between 1 and 23.  He told me 17.  I asked him why he selected 17 and he said it was a good young age in his opinion.

 So I went to my blog and counted down the comments and found that #17 was "My Message to you All"!  The next comment on the list was from "Anonymous" Lyn from Melbourne Australia. 

Congratulation "LYN" you are the Winner of my Wool Felted Beaded Baubles, the White Ruffle Embellishment, and the wee surprise was a Wet Wool Felted Easter Basket and Wee Egg I created last week. I hope you will enjoy them all. 

I would like to Thanks Everyone for participating in this giveaway.  I am very thankful for all my blogging friends and I look forward to visiting everyone blogs.  

My First Wet Felted Wool Vessel!
Last Friday was a sunny glorious day with record temperature of 83F.  Last year this time there were many feet of snow on the deck. So I took out all my wet felting supplies and I started to play. 
I created My First Wet Wool Felted Vessel. I call it the Easter Magical Seed Weed Vessel. I used hand dyed Icelandic Wool called Bubble Gum.  
I added some hand dyed curls and added beads in between the curls.

 I think the lovely shades of the hand dyed Bubble Gum wool gives the impression of beautiful "Waves of Magical Seed Weed Drifting with the Tides to the surfaces"!

I used all pastel metallic threads and some beautiful glass aqua and pink beads to do the embellishments. I decided the top edge also needed some beads too.  

What do you all think of My First Wet Felted Wool Vessel??

My First Wool Felted Flower Brooch and Sea Shell!
I was having so much fun playing with the wool I also made a "Flower Brooch" and a "Sea Shell".   I was very please with the flower brooch.  I reckon I really need to improve my felting skills when it comes to sea shells.   VBG

I recently bought these Luscious soft Merino wools. I think the colors are glorious. 

I also recently bought a "Ebook" by Rosie Pink called, 
 "Creating Felt Art Work, Step by Step Guide".
 RosiePink, has great Free Tutorials on felting on her blog that I think you all will find very informative.

My Spring Garden!
Lovely Daffodils
I took a photo of the full Magnolia Tree but I fell in Love with this One Magnificent Magnolia Bloom. Isn't it truly beautiful?

Happy Spring to ALL. 

Hugs Judy
