European "Feltmaker to Feltmaker Hand-Off"- Part 5 of 5

The adorable Deborah of Felters Journey.


                               I was humbled to see that this 'blog giveaway' of mine from years ago...

                                             ...had received 'pride of place' in her living room!


                              Their peaceful and lovely home is surrounded by greenery...


...and graced by Deborah's lovely felt work.


                                                          (Ahhhh...the orange!!!)

                                            

                                  Of course, I had to try on one of her tea cozies as a hat...

                                     

                                 ...and Deborah joined me in modeling a (tiny) felt hat of her own! :)


                                 She made delicious meals each day to keep us fortified...

                                      ...(this carrot and coriander soup was a special favorite)...

                                      

                              ...and her charming family made me feel at home in every way!

                                      

                                           Using the pre-felt lengths that I made at Pearl's...


                                              ...we each fashioned a version of the centipede scarf.





                                ...mine with colored pre-felt squares for embellishment...


                       ...and Deborah's with dyed tussah silk and 'piercings'.

                            
                                               With the remainder of the pre-felt...


                                            ...we made one long 'Nicola'-type boa ...



                                 ...by working together to do the rather tedious work...                                  


                                             ...of felting each individual 'petal'.


                               Here's Deborah during our fabulous 'boa photo shoot'! :)


                          I want to thank each and every one of my 'hostesses' and their families...

                            ...for their warm and loving care while I was traveling...

                         ....and for your patience, dear readers, as I chronicled my trip.

                                                     Next time: Back to purses! :)

I'm so glad your European trip went so well. I'm sure you learned a lot, many many new friends, and enjoyed many new and interesting foods too. Better yet, that you are home, safe and sound. :)
