Whooo's There?

 I loved working on this piece! I started with wet felting and putting a foam circle to add as a resist.  When dry I cut it out and needle felted the owl.  A friend at work who knits and spins very kindly saves all her bits of yarn for me and I needle felted and couched them down. Thanks Wendy :) Seed stitching was also added to help give it more texture and depth.  My daughter named it "Whoooo's There?"  It is going to be part of an exhibit for the months of July and August titled Join the Thread at the Signal Hill Arts Centre in Weyburn.  Anyone could submit 2 pieces for the exhibit so I entered this one and my felted Whimsy Woods.
Slow progress on my crazy quilt block.  The ideas truly are endless what one can do.

Have a most beautiful day everyone :)
