Some garden pictures

We had our market last sunday , a friend made a lot of pictures but i do not succeed in having them on my laptop. There is something with the USB stick, maybe it is only because i am really a zero with computers.......
We had a mini tornado wednesday evening! Fortunately we had no serious damage, some things are gone by the wind, that's all . Our neighbour had a big, big branch of the walnut tree fallen down. In villages nearby there were roofs seriously damaged and trees fallen down. We were lucky!!

The other morning i saw this hedgehog in the middle of the courtyard, maybe he lost his shelter...

The roses start blooming, this Bouquet parfait.

Birds and birds

This birds kit was a wonderful present from oversea. Thank you my dear friend. In the kit was only red and white embroidery thread and of course I wanted more color..... And I also changed the embroidery design.
Here they are, i only need to attach them on twined cord.

Arent' they cute?

Nantes, the workshops

I did two workshops in Nantes, one with Tina Jockel from the US and the other with Eeva Piesala from Finland.

Tina Jockel is known for her folk art dolls. This is the doll I made, she is une petite danseuse....

The body was already sawn by Tina.  So we started to fill the body, then painted the top of the dress and with a brush sopped in coffee we made her looking old and vintage.

Tina is helping ........

There was a fan to dry them.

We were supposed to give her this face; too folk art for me.......

The other day i did a wet felting workshop. I was the only participant.....
Eeva had made an example and i made the same because we wanted to concentrate on the technique of wet felting. We incorporated buttons and a piece of fabric.

There was some time left, so I prepared a small pillow and we felted it together, we had a lot of fun!

Nantes was: lots of ideas, lots of inspiration and lots of very nice people.
