Gorgeous wool and a giveaway link.

Just recently I have bought some gorgeous wool to use with my embellishing machine. Wipso and I decided that the colour schemes incorporated in these lovely yarns would help us when we were creating our little works of art.
It certainly worked when Wipso was making her little bags with a wool/felted/embellished flap. Pop over here if you are interested - they are so pretty!
And what do I do with my yarns?
This was my experiment from yesterday - a piece of white felt, embellished with wool rovings in colours which toned with one of my new yarns - Wendy-Roxy-California
I think I will make little Valentine card toppers with it now that I have added machine embroidery stitches and beads. Perhaps I will blog the finished items!

I spotted a fab giveaway whilst checking out a few crafty bloggers.
You can enter at this blog if you are looking for beautiful yarns or some japanese fabric.

Looks like that would make a good scarf design too if you ever feel like making a scarf rather than turning one into something else! xx

Looking forward to seeing what you make with that lovely felt. I love the word rovings.

Thank-you for visiting ...your embellishing work looks great - I'd love a machine ...but I doubt whether I would be able to persuade Mr Hook & Scumble that it's a necessity until I have a big clear out !
