Hello Sweet Friends!!!
With Nero we welcome you to read our woollen post! But the most important thing today is to thank you so much for thinking Nero! I’m so touched about all your sweet words about him and advices what could help him! He is happy and playful and I don’t think he has much pain because he don’t avoid any movements. In fact I feel that running is more comfortable than walking for the moment. He takes medicin in the morning and the evening and now he starts also the cod liver oil. He is very happy and that’s good!
Wool is so wonderful material! And beautiful! It gives so soft and facinating look for the colours! Now and then I have made some felting and some tiny things. These qute balls are still waiting the right moment to become ‘something’.
One of the qute woollen balls, in my favorite blue colour, found the perfect place here.
This is a band to keep the hairs away from the face. I found this lovely idea from Maya. She writes beautiful blog and I love her ideas and natural materials she is using. Sometimes the moment is just right – like when I saw this – I had all the materials ready and also needed this for my too long hair. So in no time I had made this great, practical band.
If you make felted ‘ribbons’, you can create many lovely items with them. The spiral on my hair-band is a ‘ribbon’ like this. Also even you like to use the ‘ribbon’ later for something else, it’s possible because you don’t need to cut it.
This is an other simple way to make a necklace. I like jewelleries – who doesn’t – but also I like simple things with natural materials. Those keramic ‘beads’ I have found from Athens quite many years ago. There was a great shop, big shop, full of things to make jewelleries!
This turqoise is of couse my favorite! It has a special metal item from Finnish ‘Kalevalakoru’.
I have this metallic ‘item’ really long time. Then it was the time we were shirts buttoned up and a ribbon or even a tie. This was for a ‘cowboy style’!
First it had this black ribbon….ooooh how stylish it must have been!?
Now with this felted turqoise ribbon it looks totally different and I like it! I was thinking my dear blog friend Jane…she makes jewelleries for example with silver. She could make something like this! It’s exiting to see how it happens – to make a ring or something else – visit her and you’ll see!
Simple, warm ring for your wrist! Take three ribbons and make them a plait!
Enjoy the wonderful wool – it’s amazing material and you can make so many totally different kind of crafts with this amazing fiber! It’s even beautiful just for a decoration!
I should have shown to you this shawlet for a loooong time ago…but there is always so many things to show…
It’s like when I meet my Finnish friends…we have always so much to say that there is just not enough time…and if we don’t say immediately what we are thinking we forget it and we laugh that we should write down all the time our thoughts and then ask turn to speak.
I have made this shawlet last winter. It’s again with those thin yarns I had for the knitting machine. I have used two yarns together. The main piece is really big and just straigh and I made the crochet part separate.
I found this this crochet pattern from some old Finnish magazine. It was really long way to crochet!
That was all about wool…today. Shall I tell you still about the lemon pie?
Now is time for lemons and oranges and we have made several times really tasty lemonpie. But…the last time something strange happened … and we just couldn’t take the pie out of the baking tin! We ate as much as possible but then I had to ask our friends to help…
It was really hard work for them but they cleaned it well! Next time I shall find a new recipe!!!
Thank you for spending time with us today and hope to see you soon again!!! Have a lovely, sunny time!!!
