FRIENDSHIP



These beautiful gifts were sent to me by a very new and kind friend, Karen. Isn't this pile outrageous?!!! I'm drooling over this stuff, and am dying that I have to wait for the holidays to be done so I can start playing with those felt pieces! I see a necklace in there for sure! I noticed Karen's great crochet and fiber work in the latest issue of Belle Armoire, and had to leave her a note, I just fell in love with her work, and Karen is such a great person, another sister artist that works straight from her heart.
Karen made the gorgeous felted bracelet in the top photo, along with all the balls and rope. She also decorted the candle, and made the adorable lavender sachet. Then she also sent gorgeous ceramic pieces made by her stepdaughter, they are really cool! And the sweetest gift is that large bubble looking stone in the top right corner. That is a piece of rutilated quartz that Karen says brings good health. I think I will carry it in my pocket as I go to Philadelphia today for testing tomorrow.
If you can, visit Karen's blog and etsy shop...your gomnna love it. She likes to show antiques and vintage clothes that she and her daughter like to shop for, and her daughter has an etsy shop with vintage clothing too!
The countdown to Christmas is on....hope you are all keeping up the pace! Thanks again for visiting.

What amazing gifts. And what an amazing new friend! I really love the felt balls. I am going to try that one of these days when I get some roving.
