Felting and the magic

I am back, looking for something new, different, more profound and magical.

Travel does that to you somehow. It takes you on a journey, not just an A to B journey, but a more profound one. In my case going back in time to places lived,  memories thought lost, 14 years of catching up that can´t be done in two weeks. But we tried and I saw the magic.  My family, my sisters and friends welcomed me into their homes and families .

 I saw this magic and was humbled by it. It was profound. The magic of giving. It has stirred up emotions. Inspired me to give more. Created a need to pass on this magic.

When I started creating felted wraps, they were not initially made for brides.  Unintentionally, I was involved,  in unique and real love stories.  Brides from around the world bought my wraps. Classical ones, sometimes vintage, occasionally boho.  Rushes to post offices and then, later,  (sometimes much later and sometimes never) photos were received.


... to those who let me participate in their magical moment in 2012 

For 2013; 

I wish to pass on this magic and I am creating, felting, something different. Something profound, something magical, something for you.

Felting, Family and Friends

 I am back from my trip to New York, USA and to Surrey, Devon and York, UK. Back from a felting workshop with Liz Clay

 back from seeing my mum again, from having tea and going shopping with my sisters, meeting up with Aunts, Uncles, and cousins and  meeting my niece for the second time in her 14 years of life.

Back from meeting meeting Charity Van der Meer for lunch in London to
finalize details of her trip to Buenos Aires and Chile

 I am back with my felt wraps,  my felting friends,  back to the organizing of  Charity´s felting workshops and back to the magic that comes with felting.
I am back and I am looking for something new. I am not sure what it is yet. Something different, more profound and more magical.
