While at AFIC, we met a wonderful couple who raised sheep and sold the wool roving. The name of their company is Wooly Comforts. The colors were spectacular - very rich. We chatted during the slow times and got to know them a bit. The last day we were there, Nancy (I hope I remembered your name correctly!)brought in wool beads she had made the night before to use in a necklace. They were so pretty, I had to try them myself which I did while Barbara and Lynnis were here. They gave me great info - make the balls then string them in a stocking and through them into the washer and dryer. Worked great. Here is the necklace I made with them.
I attended a bridal shower yesterday and of course I had to make a purse for the bride. I found this beautiful embroidered and beaded tulle lace which had a scalloped edge that sortof mimicked the embellishment on her beautiful gown. I made a looped fringe on the bottom from beads and Austrian crystal drops and bicones. Subdued bling. I hope I got the color right - she said I did and she loved it!
