beginnings of a landscape and a gorgeous tin..


nearly finished..think I will add some sheep ,birds and rocks next..



beginning of the landscape
Today I had a great day at a felting/textile group and I started on a landscape that I have been meaning to try for a long time. I boughtI so much wool roving at the Woolfest last Spring and still havent used it so I thought I must make something before I attend the next show at the end of June. Here are 2 photos showing the beginnings ....I think I will add some sheep at the front and more rocks near the lake but am quite pleased with it so far. I just worked from memory remembering the beautiful Welsh countryside that we hope to see again soon in the summer when we go camping again


When I got back home I was delighted to find a parcel for me from Heather in Canada. It contained the most fantastic little tin . I just love all the work she has put into this and think it is superb so go check out her blog and see more of her great art...hope she likes what is on the way to her!!

Your felted piece is beautiful! I have a bunch of silk and wool roving sitting in a basket. Is this needle felted?
