Continuing with my exhibition work in my usual bungling style I began stitching on this piece of felt I put together at the felt group.
I'd used pre-felts : pieces of wool felted together lightly and then 'collaged ' onto a background and re felted.
It was a bit of a strange composition and took quite some bringing together.
I think I probably took this idea a bit too seriously as it has been stitched to within an inch of it life.
In fact I might have stitched it to death.
I got carried away especially at the start with the machining.
when I was making it I added a piece with 'pebble' which are little woolly bobbles, and they made lovely textured leaves when I stitched around them.
French knot alert to the Northwest.
Here is the whole piece on a piece of calico which will be its eventual mount .
Just need to think of a title with the word 'bough' in it.
Onwards and upwards.
More felt to stitch this week.
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post. It gave me the oomph I needed to get on with this.
I am going to experiment with replies...if I can't reply to you via email I'll reply here. So check back for an answer.
