WOUW this is my 260th blog post and to celebrate that I´ll do a give away….. I never thought I would have so much fun with blogging. Thank you all for your comments in the past and hopefully also in the future!! More info about the give – away at the bottom of this post.
First let me tell you about The Merry go round group it is a group of artists/crafts-women as they link hands around the world and tell you a little about their lives and art. We are group of 11 women from all over the world.
This last friday of this month the theme is` Share a photo that affects you someway`
I love making pictures, I think I use my camera everyday.. so I descide to stick to a picture I made myself. Terrible diffycult to choose just one but here it is:
I really love this flower (Aquilegia ) as it is a sign summer is coming. This one is really special as it has a double layer of petals and all the ribbles in it, a little piece of art, just like many other flowers and plants are.. I can get inspired to make felt with a structure like this.
Please see which picture my other merriers have chosen.

Hi all!! Hoi Allemaal!!
No I didn’t disappeared, or else, it was just I was way too occupied with the last things which needed to be done before we left for our vacation to Sweden and as I don’t have a laptop/ notebook (jet) . I wasn’t able to connect the internet for 12 days…. But last night we came home and today it is the merry go round day: the last friday of the month. Nee , ik ben niet verdwenen of zoiets, ik was gewoonweg te druk met het regelen van al die dingen die nog even moesten voor onze vakantie naar Zweden. Ook was ik daar niet echt in de gelegenheid om te internetten aangezien ik geen laptop / notebook heb:( Dus 12 lange dagen zonder internet. Ik heb het overleefd en vannacht zijn we terug gekomen perfect op tijd voor mijn merry go round post vandaag.
The Merry go round group is a group of artists/crafts-women as they link hands around the world and tell you a little about their lives and art. We are group of 10 women from all over the world.
This last friday of December the theme is:
We descided to exchange some stuf we normally make/ use with someone else of the group. I got somethigns from Agathe at Le Bar du Vent
. I got such lovely things from Agathe: some swarovski glass beads, some cute lace and some nice pendants. I was very excited when I unpacked them.
supplies from Agathe
My months were really full with workshops and other stuff I needed to take care of so I descided to take everything along on my vacation to Sweden. Yes they have even been taken along to Stockholm!!
After Stockholm we went back to my friend in the very south of Sweden and started felting there nearly every evening. I first made a ring with a lovely crystal pedant… and after that I felted things my friend needed… now that I am writing about this I realise I could have incorparated the lace into this ring. I simply forgot.
So on my next ring I will make I will add the lace
I really loved this collaboration project as I needed to thhink of something made with a material I never used before. I loved it!! The ring looks delicate, compared to my other rings. So thank you Agathe for sending these items!!!
Want to see what others got and made??? Hop over to their blogs please and leave a comment!!
