Fabric Picture

I spent yesterday evening making a fabric picture of Sirena; its 8" tall. Yep...still using those little shells!!!
I got a delivery of merino wool top from Wingham Wool a few days ago (you'll never guess what colours - yes, blues, greens and purples!) Time to go and do some felting I think......
.
Wherever you are in the world......have a wonderful weekend!

Serina is looking beautiful and you've put so much work into her. We like the same colours - I keep trying to choose others but they just won't work for me. I've just been very good and worked all morning in the garden, so that gives me tomorrow off - to play! Who cares about a wet weekend?!!

Gini said...

She's beautiful too!
You did all that in one evening?!!!

Hi Linda,
Thank you for your comment.
I have to admit, my favourite parts of your challenges are knowing that everybody has the same material to stick to, and then seeing them all showcased afterwards. It's so nice to see what other people have done with theirs. And I already have ideas for my next entry...

Don't know how I missed this post! Sirena looks gorgeous as a fabric page Linda. I adore that background fabric (and used every bit of the piece you sent to me - yumminess).
