Red Flowers Postcard

I found a little time to make a few more small surprises this weekend.

I rediscovered my needle-felting machine (Babylock Embellisher) and made a little birthday card for my former daughter-in-law.

I felted the red silk roving that I dyed with Kool-Aid to a piece of hand-painted fabric.  I also added some yarn and some very sparkly variegated fibers that I purchased.

The back is a piece of a watercolor painting with some added stamping.

I needle-felted and stitched some more bookmarks, which I will wait until tomorrow to post since they are surprises for my art quilt bee.

We got the Christmas tree put up and some of the indoor decorations.  I still have to hang up the Christmas quilts and put out the Nativity scene.  Not to mention get my house ready for all the Turners to come for our annual Christmas dinner next Saturday.  A busy time of year, but a wonderful season of love.

The weather has turned slightly colder, which helps it seem a bit more like Christmas.  But it would really seem more like Christmas if it would do this again!

I am planning on doing some Embellisher work combined with wet felting, tomorrow. Funny how the urge to work with the silk and wool fibers always hits me in the winter!!!

Love your card and I am sure your BEE will love theirs as well!! Ho Ho Ho!!!!
