Fog Chaser

Sorrento Harbor today in the fog.




The inspiration for my latest creation.



A hand knitted, wool felted scarf, I call "fog chaser."






As an afterthought today, I added the vintage pearl buttons to the center of the felted roses.



I had to show restraint with adding too many roses though.



They were so much fun to make, so I added one to this mini "fog chaser" bag.





With a vintage earring added to the center.




A felted rose "fog chaser" pin, to safely make your way home in the fog.







On a day such as today.







Henri in his "fog chaser" t-shirt. At least now we have an explanation of why he owns 2 of them.



This evening's "fog chaser" dessert.




Blueberry cupcakes. The perfect end to a fog filled day in Maine. What inspired you today?

I love all of these wonderful fog chasers! The scarf, the pin, the bag, those yummy cupcakes, and of course Henri's shirt!

What a lovely scarf, pin and bag. I want to try felting. I will have an abundance of wool and can play this winter. We had a blanket of fog the other day and I have a really cool pic of the cemetary in fog. Now, about that shirt. He should definitely wear it in the fog. You would always be able to find him easy! Love it.

Oh my. Loved seeing the photos with the fog. There's something about a foggy day that makes our minds starte wandering in thought. I remember the scene near the end of Gone With The Wind..the one in Scarlett's nightmare...with all the fog. Your scarf with all the pretties is just awesome. I love the photos and you are one talented blogger gal. I think the cupcakes look scrumptious and love the strawberry topper. Pretty.
Have a great week!

I so love fog..., and we've got it here now, after a rainy day yesterday. I want this to last forever..., the air is delicious!!

These are just lovely!
But, of course, not nearly as lovely as Henri in one of his stylin' ensembles. ;-)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Lili, I love them ALL!
My daughter recently taught
herself to make felt animals
and I need to read your archives
on felting. You really do
create some wonderful things.
{I hope there will be a Lili
original in my future....I do
keep an eye on your shop!}
Maine is always gorgeous to
me, even in the fog : )

You even manage to make fog beautiful - and I can see exactly how that scene inspired your lovely scarf.

It hasn't rained in Seattle in weeks and I find myself longing for some rain and a nice fog. Thank you for providing me with a lovely, cozy foggy day. I'll have to settle for a vicarious experience.

I love the foggy roses on your creations.
