Five

Some red roving had been staring at me for days,  just asking to be needle felted into a piece.

I learned the technique of making the metal pieces from pop cans in a Hilary Rice workshop.

Colour Personified

Colour Personified is a needlefelted piece based on a watercolour (see post here) I did a while ago.

The curly bits are hand spun wool yarns I used to add more texture.

This piece, along with 2 others were in the OOTB‘s Colour Unboxed show at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum  that closed earlier this year.

The other 2 pieces were:

Nature Colours  also based on a watercolour  can be seen here. I renamed the piece for the show. The original watercolour is here.

Forest Fawn, an applique and part of the OOTB green colour challenge is here.

 

Red Fox 2

A few weeks ago I posted a watercolour of a red fox and said that I might do it in felt.

Well I did and here’s the result.

Just finished a new needle felted piece.  This time, for the background, I used a piece that I had wet felted years ago and never did anything with.

This will be one of the pieces shown at Out of the Box‘s Fibre Fling 5 show in early April.

Purple and Blue

A new needle-felted piece.  I’m not sure if it’s finished.  I need to live with it for awhile to see what it says to me.

Here is my latest felted piece.  It will be mounted on a painted canvas. I haven’t yet decided which colour or colours I’m going to paint it.  I have fooled around in Photoshop and have come up with several possible versions.

This Old House

The house isn’t that old.  It’s just that my friends, Margo and Pat have bought a new one.  I felted them a reminder of their former house.
