I alwayes gets smitten with all the wonderful Halloween creations
I see on the internet visiting my friends, and so I wanted to 
make a sweet witch myself!

She is dressed in real velvet ,and her shawl is a lovely piece of
 machine embroidered black fabric. She wears some witchy things in her hands,
and am app. 45 cm high.

I also wants to show you a beautiful packet I recieved from my lovely
friend Lynne  some long time ago..... I`m sorry it takes me that long,for the moment being, to blog 
about my gifts! I know I have more to show!!
Dear Lynne had created the most beautiful paper bag to hold
all the most lovely and delicate dyed pieces, for me.

Please click on the photo to see it more close up, it is so wonderful!
And so is the lovely cheececloth in most wonderful shades of pink-peach and light blue.

Here is more and many ribbons and laces too- also Lynne dyed some tags for me ---

and created this very beautiful one- which I adore.

Isen`t it all so beautiful. 
I alwayes admire that Lynne uses home dyed fabrics for her amazing creations,and love
her colour choises, just look at this bunch of loveliness.

Thankyou my dear sweet friend- it was so generous of you, and I 
will be happy to create with it all, after having admired it for a while first!

Friday I travel to Copenhagen to stay for the week-end, and then bring my two grandchildren 
with me home monday,- to grandpa and Bornholm.
They will visit us for the week, and I am so happy, to have them
here - to play, laugh and have fun!

There will not be much time, if any, for posting and visiting you my dear friends,
but I will be back again , eager to see all you have been
up to, while I am full time grandma :-)

In the meantime -take care and be happy-
Love and hugs, Dorthe

Also to my new followers, I welcome you from my heart.

You made a very beautiful witch Dorthe....her outfit is so lovely. You always make such wondeful things. I can't wait to see what you make with all the pretty hand-dyed bits & pieces you received from Lynne!

Have a wonderful time in Copenhagen...and enjoy every single minute of the time you'll be spending with your sweet grandchildren when they are visiting you and your husband. Take lots of pictures so you can share them with us.

Sød og sjov heks, og sikke et farveorgie i blonder, det må da være dejligt når det nu er så småt med genbrugs butikker på Bornholm.
Nyd nu dine børnebørn i den kommende uge, de bliver så hurtig store, og tak for dine kommentarer hos mig, ja jeg forstår ikke jeg bliver ved med at ha ondt i halsen, jeg syntes ikke jeg hverken har tid eller lyst til at gå til læge igen. knus morkaren.

Hallowe'en must be the most fun at your home Dorthe with sweet creations like this, can a witch be sweet? What wonderful features on her face.
I had fun dying these for you, you are one of the most generous ladies in blogland so it was a pleasure to do this for you.
Have a wonderful time Dorthe with the children.

Kjære Dorthe. Den heksa var så nydelig,(om vi kan si at ei heks er nydelig,)( smil.) I alle fall den fineste jeg har sett.

God klem fra meg.

This is a sweet, sweet witch, my dear Dorthe! You've dressed her beautifully with that pretty dress and the elegant shawl. I love her hat too.
Lynne is such a sweetheart to send you all those lovely hand dyed laces. Enjoy looking at them and then using in some of your gorgeous creations!
Have a safe trip to Copenhagen and back and have a wonderful time with your sweet grandkids!
Mange kys og knus,

Hi Sweetie,

Здравей скъпа Дороти, страхотна вещица,на мен тя ми изглежда сладка мила и добра. Успя да ме вдъхновиш с хелоуинско настроение.
Дантелите и парчетата плат, които си получила са боядисани в невероятно меки и нежни цветове. Сигурна съм, че ще направиш много красиви неща от тях.
Прегръдки и хубав ден от мен.

Lululiz said...

Your witch is wonderful, Dorthe, and obviously a witch with very good taste, as her outfit is very elegant and sophisticated.
Oh, and those beautiful gifts from Lynne, you lucky girl, they are gorgeous and I can't wait to see how you are going to use them.

Beth Leintz said...

Oh Dorthe, your witch is such a fun witch! I love all your dyed pieces from Lynn, such wonderful possibilities. Have a great time with your grand kids- I bet you are a FUN grandma!

Gaby Bee said...

Your witch is too cute. You've dressed her really beautifully. Love her little bag:)

Enjoy your trip and have fun with your grandchildren my dear!

Sweet witch indeed! There should be more sweet witches for Halloween. Look at all those lace confections in the charming pinks! Lucky you. xox

Angela Richardson said...

Your witch is truly wonderful. I love her cloak, she looks all ready for Halloween fun.
I'm sure that you will have lots of fun too with your grandchildren.
hugs and smiles....

trisha too said...

She's adorable, your witchy, definitely a "charmer!"

Lovely pieces, but that dyed cheesecloth, all those beautiful colors--very distracting . . .

Enjoy your time with your family!


suziqu's thread works said...

Oh sweet friend across the seas
(hope it wasn't too stormy!!!!)
Your Witchy Woman is gorgeous dressed in that rich black velvet and embroidered shawl! Witches aren't meant to look beautiful but yours certainly does! You could let her fly on a broom to me (hehe!).

I love everything dear Lynne has sent you - the cheesecloth is dyed in such pretty shades along with all the trims and laces. Also adore that Shakspearean stamped image - she is also very gorgeous (like Portia!).

I can see you having lots of fun with these but the most fun at present will be with your two adorable grand children. Enjoy every minute!
Sending much love and joy to your heart.

sharon said...

yOUR WITCH IS THE SWEETEST EVER dORTHE, i LOVE HER SWEET BALLARINA FEET! Lynn's creations are to die for! So romantic and sweet, and you deserve all of it and more!

Carole said...

Oh Dorthe I can feel the excitement in your writing about seeing your grandchildren. Have a great time with them. I'm sure they love seeing all your goodies as much as we do. Great to have a grandmother that's so creative.

oh right you wondered about the "no white" after labor day. I actually was not sure where it cames from but a few bloggers explained that it's a southern thing and really not such a big deal anymore. They tell me it's more the shoes then the dress....gosh so much to remember:) I wear white shoes all the time...sneakers that is.


Marie Lost Bird Studio said...

Claudia said...

She's a stylishly dressed witch, Dorthe!


Lisa said...

I hope your week with the kiddos was fantastic! How is the weather there? Fall finally arrived here, 80 degrees and even rain! Just hope it stays.
Lynne sends you the most amazing things. Her dyed laces and cloth are indeed beautiful and I can see it all working it's way into your art.
Have a great day sweet friend.
