Welcome to our Merry-Go-Round!!! We are an international group of artists and crafters who meet on the last friday of each month, and blog about a common theme... This month, it's a swap! We all made a little something for a fellow Merry-go-rounder!!
My gift comes from Alison who uses Harris tweed as her main material in her work. I am a total tweed virgin lol, so I got a little info from Wiki:
'Harris Tweed (Clò Mór or Clò na Hearadh in Gaelic), is a luxury cloth that has been handwoven by the islanders on the Isles of Harris, Lewis, Uist and Barra in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, using local wool.'
Fabulous handmade material!!
And here's my delicious new friend, baptised Maya!
Maya is made of tweed the most scrumptious shade of raspberry, which is a favourite colour of mine!! Such a sweet little russian doll, perfectly proportionned... she is BEAUTIFUL!! The finishing touches are just to die for, her little sleepy face is so adorable, so NEAT!!! The little natural tweed bag is so cute too!!!
Your work is gorgeous Alison, thank you so much for this lovely gift!!
I made something for Lily, go and have a nose... :)
And then have a look at what everyone got!! You'll find direct links in the sidebar on the right, thanks for reading!!
