Bottle of Friendship 滿載友情的瓶子

Bottle of Friendship

My friend Heidi left me a few wine bottles after a short stay in my tiny studio. The couple has a good taste of wine & food and now enjoying life. She knows I can make something with the bottles. Yes, I love to re-do something with wool. Here’s the coated bottle made – I call it “Bottle of Friendship”.
好友 Heidi 最近在我的小室短留兩天游游水晒晒太陽, 她夫婦倆一向享受生活, 紅酒美食甚有品味. 她留給我空酒瓶, 知道我會好好利用做點手工, 對我可真了解.
Heidi is my good friend since teenage. We’d lots of travels together. We’ve been to China, to Sausalito, Alcatraz Island in the States, walked the dogs with Jan in Gloucestershire. She’s a cheerful lady, with her company I’ll never bored. What made us most impressive was the journey to Provence, France. On our way to Nyons from Montepillar we passed by the lavender field – the first sight of lavender made us excited.
Heidi 是我在學時死黨, 多年來, (真係好多年, 嘻嘻..), 我們結伴旅遊, 嚐潮汕美食, 閑遊美國 Sausalito, Alcatraz 小島, 在英國鄉間溜溜狗. 她的開朗歡樂, 有她同行永無冷場, 與她最近一次去南法普羅旺斯, 甫到埗見到薰衣草田我們雀躍不已.
The bottle was made with memory of our brilliant days in Provence.
戀戀山城, 南法風情縈迴繚繞, 以瓶子盛之.

Poppy is my favorite flower. Just love the bright color. 隨風搖曳艷紅的罌粟花更是我所愛.

Stunning and brilliant 晴空萬里, 花香處處.

Inspired and shown by Kim of Viltalakim I made this coated bottle. I used merino wool and cut the prefelt for poppies. Laid the wool on the resist on one side for poppies and the other for lavenders.

Wet it and do the rolling and fulling . Cut the top and removed the resist then put on the bottle to shape it fit.

I like my friends who drive me challenge for creation. I cherish our friendship. Wave washes away the words but our friendship will never fade out.
我的朋友不時給我鼓勵, 給我靈感, , 海浪會沖走沙堆, 不會沖去友情.

Heidi, this little bay in Stanley surely reminisces your childhood when you stayed in your uncle’s quarter during summer vacation.
Heidi 我知道這個赤柱小灘給你很多童年回憶, 你在 舅父的宿舍渡假游水, 歡渡多個快樂暑假.

I put a slip inside this bottle, it’s floating to your end……….. awaiting your pick-up.
瓶子滿載美麗回憶 漂浮到你的彼岸.
Enjoy life and our friendship forever. 期待下一次悠遊假期……
