Felting Away

Yesterday I got in a groove and worked on some needle felting.
I had already wet felted a base of sky, clouds and grass, which I then
placed on white wool and needle felted everything together, adding shading and details.


The felting gives such a dreamy effect and now I have to figure out
how to present it for the show. Frame? Glass? Wall Hanging?
To be determined!


This second piece (photo taken on a sunny surface) is one I've
been tinkering with for a while. The background and trees are fabric,
the foreground is felt. I have to figure out whether I like it today, or else 
let it go and move on to something else. As usual, a deadline is spurring me on 
to be very productive. Show is November 1 and I have much to do!
Fortunately, I'm in "the zone" and love doing it!

Hope your week is off to a good start!

Love, love love what you've been doing. That first piece has such texture it would be a shame to put it under glass. Once again I am totally taken in by your colors. Hope your creative juices keep flowing and that you can maintain your "zone" in the days ahead.

Love both. Especially love the different textures in the second piece...nice contrast between fabric, felt and stitching.

Even though these two pieces have been worked in different ways, they both have your style, Judy...lovely colors, pastoral scenes and your certain "something".

It will be fun to see how your pieces hang together at the show.
