Getting ready for the CWA Twilight Markets now moved to 18th April because of lots of rain in SE Queensland, I made a nuno felt scarf the other day.
It is totally different to anything I’ve made before and I love it!
Using a thin strip of black chiffon, I laid the wool rovings well over the edge to get a softer edging. I also made some pre-felts of bright orange and turquoise/teal which I cut and laid out on the top with other bits of wool shapes and lots of hand-dyed silk tops.
It was fun to make as I haven’t felted much lately and I was very eager to see the outcome of this one.
Here are a couple of pics – not the best quality, but you get the idea:

All ready for their debut at the CWA Easter Art & Craft Twilight Markets in Beerwah on Saturday 4th April, here are lots of little boxes of Gratitude.
Each box is filled with 100 mini cards with “Thank you” on the back and “I am grateful for” x 98 different qualities and things – plus two blank cards to represent either infinite possibilities or for you to write your own quality on there.
I love the quality printing and cards, as well as the little gift boxes that each comes in.
What a lovely gift of gratitude to give the world – like so many new babies – that I have had the pleasure in making.
This project began in 2006, and I realise now that I needed to work through my own non-gratitude to a much more fulfilled place within myself before they could be born. Over the last 8 years, I have come face-to-face with those pockets within me that were not grateful but small, clinging and miserable parts of myself that had lost touch with what I call my true Essence. My inner journey has taken me on lots of self-focused meditations and transformational zones, where I released so much of what was keeping me small and ‘dark’.
To me, Easter is a wonderful time of symbolic renewal in which to present these cards, as each one has within it the potential to assist personal transformation on many levels.
If you’re in Beerwah on the 4th April, please do come along and say hello and choose a card to receive a free ‘gift of gratitude’! I’m writing the little booklet that will accompany the boxes of cards, and the card I chose to assist me with this was Receptivity.
