Calendar Girls, Gift

This is the calendar page Neki picked for our December inspiration. It looks like outer space to me.I used the Embellisher to felt down some wool roving, then machine embroidered a spiral in metallic thread. The clear beads are added by hand.

Yesterday was such a pleasant day. The sun was shining, I shopped at Michael's and then met a friend at Fabric Depot-Portland's store that is an acre of fabrics. Of course, I bought a couple of books-my obsession. We had a nice lunch, and she gave me a gift "just because...". It's rovings and silk tops in our favorite colors. I think I will use them for a background for a Bead Journal Project next year.

The embellisher looks like so much fun! Sounds like you had a great day.

Good job, it's beautiful! I'm still felting by hand, but totally enjoy it.

Sandy - I have been drooling over all of your posts that I have missed in these last few weeks. Gorgeous as ever - love the whipped stitched border, the lovely crazy quilt purse and the swirling outerspace felt!
