This is my August 24 entry for the CoBloWriMo challenge – Unexpected Source.

Some of the items I’ve received in Largess have let me down entirely new paths for craft and costume! For instance, a few years ago I volunteered at gate at an event, and was invited to pick something from largesse for a thank-you. I picked a wooden lucet fork, and that led my interest in trying lucet. (I’ve since replaced that wooden fork with a bone one from Warm Hearth Creations .)

I also have benefited from other gifts; items that I would have made for myself, but then didn’t need to because they came from largesse instead! One of these was a needlebook – I’ve since acquired two of them – one for my period-style sewing kits, and the other for my mundane one!

A while ago I received a number of pieces of largesse – there were a few pieces that I took for myself, a few piece that I took to Finland to give away, and a few more that I’ll give away at upcoming competitions or tournaments. There are lots of posts of Largesse on Pinterest, so I figured I’d make up a quick blog post with a few of these pieces… and link to my largesse tag so you can see even more if you’re interested.

This particular batch includes:

  • Set of three hand-felted balls by Magy of Aberdeen
