Knitted Felted Rainbow Bowls

Creative Friday and Fridays Nature Table

Last week I posted about the process of making these bowls.  Here is the finished product now for sale in my Etsy shop, Bridgit's Bell.

These bowls are very sturdy and would hold up to children's play or be used by adults for treasures or display.

I walk in a nearby cemetery that has amazing trees.  The the bowls are displayed on the large shelf-type mushrooms growing on the sides of a stump.  On the top of the stump is a tangle of vines.  Nature is never wasteful and life grows from death.

The mushroom is Ganoderma applanatum, otherwise known as the Artist’s Conk.





Pay It Forward Handmade

I saw this on Kittens with Mittens blog and thought it was a great idea.
I signed up on her site and I hope to get three people to sign up here.So if you want to play, here’s how to join in:
  1. I will send a surprise gift to the first three commenters on this post. The gift will be handmade by me. It will be sent sometime in the next 365 days. It will be a surprise. We all love getting surprises in the mail, right?
  2. In your comment, tell me your two favorite colors (that will help me make an appropriate gift).
  3. To sign up and receive a gift, you must play along, too. Pay it Forward on your blog, by promising to make a surprise for the first three people who comment on the post.
  4. You must have a blog (that is updated, as I will blog stalk you to find the right gift for you).
  5. After commenting here, you must re-post this or something similar to your blog in 48 hours. If not, I will chose the next person who comments…

Looking forward to seeing who I get to send some joy to.

For Bits of Goodness

Bits of Goodness is a Yahoo Group, Waldorf inspired, where moms or grandmoms (or future grandmoms in my case), swap small handmade items based on a theme.  I have been participating for about 1 1/2 years.  A swap is announced (these were made for "Sunshine and Flowers") and you have a month or so to craft 6 items using any natural materials and craft style you want.  Some knit, paint, embroider, sculpt, needle felt, etc.  Its fun and easy and inspiring.    This link will bring you to the Flickr page http://www.flickr.com/groups/960637@N25/  And this one to the Facebook page www.facebook.com/bitsofgoodness
