Balance and harmony, in there life
Just email me and I will send you one

A little Blue Child

Blue is not my favorite color
I hardy ever make blue items
I wonder if it is related to the word Blue
"I am blue" etc
My energy changes when I work with it
I also do not wear blue as a color

Nativity Tableau

Yesterday I made this lovely Nativity Tableau
I will take it into a local Art cafe where I sell my work
It is too big to ship overseas
I enjoyed creating it

Spring's emergence

Last week we had snow flurries,  this week the sun is shinning and Spring has arrived
Pink Blosson is starting to appear
Daffodils are out
 It is cold enough to still need a fire at night
I found some pink wool at the bottom of my basket
And made this Spring wreath

Another wreath

 Now this was fun to make
A farmer with one of his sheep
I went outside into the orchard to find a stick for him to carry

Making wreaths

I felt like a change
So I sat and covered a wreath with golden yellow wool
Then added white wool yarn
I found some glitter wings and added a fairy and glitter acorns
And low and behold, I had made a wreath
I think tomorrow I might make some more
I think she is nice for the coming Winter / Christmas season 
I have lots of ideas spinning around in my head

Love and light  Marie

Settler's Museum Exhibition

My nearest Small town has a Settler's Museum
I was asked if I would like to have a small display of some of my needle felt art
 The focus is an exhibition all about wool
What fun to join in with my local community

Cheers  Marie

New Angel Pictures

 My sister is involved with a Waldorf Kindergarten
Many of  the young Mother's have new babes
This always inspires me to create Angels carrying babes
Bringing new life down to earth and placing the babe in a Mother's arms
 I never tire of making these, they are a joy.

Snow flurries

Snow swirled around my home yesterday
I could see snow laden hills in the distance
So I decided to make a Father Christmas

New Zealand has a high rate of child abuse and violence towards children
There are lots of reasons for this
Poor housing , lack of education, no money,  high unemployment to name a few
Prior  to the Anti-smacking law change of 2009
I would see Mother's whacking their children in the supermarket and street
Now I see them still annoyed with their child, but restraining themselves because the public is viewing them 
This gives the Mother the time to breathe, and so when they finally get to the car, it might have blown over
And the child is free from the fear that violence creates
I am a supporter of talking  to the child
Physical discipline is not the answer
What are your views

Love and light  Marie

Bright Star

A thing of Beauty is a joy forever"

I have just seen "Bright Star" again with my husband this time
The movie about the romantic English poet John Keats and his love for Fanny 
I so enjoyed the movie and the clothes and language, that I made  this picture.
Set in 1818, Fanny is standing in a field of purple and blue flowers
It brought back to me this picture I made a year ago, which has gone out into the world.

Custom order Bee Badges

A local Honey Bee store has requested some Bee Badges
I have never made needle felted badges before
I was pleased with how they turned out
What do you think
We had 3 Bee hives for 15 years, but do not have them now
I sure loved having my own honey

Cool colors

This morning when I awoke
A heavy frost covered the ground
I think this little frost child might have been busy in the night
