Wool Applique, Completed


Today I added some needlefelted flowers, and some shading to this piece and I think it looks better. I did find that working with wool was difficult because of the bulkiness of the fabric. The next time I do this , I'll lay the pieces flat and outline each section with a blanket stitch.
I probably could take the felted flowers further, but I didn't want to overdo it.

Like many others, I'm thinking today about the people who are in the path of Hurricane Gustav, and adding my thoughts and prayers for their safety and well being.

This is beautiful. I feel a sense of recognition when I see this piece. It reminds me of the area where some of my family resides (Skagit County, WA) . Your handwork is flawless.

This one. I took just a little while to decide but this one has the 'pop'. I think I will take your advise/observation and lay my felt/wool flat and buttonhole stitch around.
Love those jewell colours and the flowers are just perfect.
Congratulations on a lovely piece.
