Here's my finished little felted piece. The tree was lacking something so I needle-felted a wee owl to it. Once a year a small art gallery in the city puts on an exhibit of members works and that's where it is hanging right now.
I've been enjoying more felting lately and here is another piece that I laid out on bubble wrap ready for soapy water and a lot of rolling.
Felted and free motion machine embroidered and ready now for some hand stitching. I'm thinking it needs a few bees to begin with.
Chain stitch, stem, straight, french knots and fly stitches for the cover of another owlet accordion booklet. I'll do a buttonhole wheel for the eyes and add beads too.
I had such a fun marbling afternoon with a few friends from our stitchery guild.
We marbled fabric and paper using Pebeo marbling on sodium alginate
and also on shaving cream using Dye-na flow paints. We also marbled papers with shuminagashi japanese inks on water which was also fun. We were challenged to do something with our pieces before the next meeting so now I just have to do something with them besides look at them.
Wishing everyone a beautiful day and a lovely weekend :)
