Embellished Felt

23rd  June 2014

I intended to have a 'sort out' today and finish a couple of cards but managed to become side tracked!!

Finished two keepsake cards....

I used the embellisher and variegated Merino Fleece for the background, needle felted the poppies, added black beads and hand stitched the stems, birds and edging...



....loved making this piece with a variety of fabrics, beads, lace, machine and hand stitching.



Next I framed my 'Silver Birch at Sunset' machine embroidery on a transfer painted fabric....


......put this transfer painted, stitched 'Winter Tree' in a mount...



...these have been added to my little shop

The baby blanket is progressing slowly but I do like the pattern....


...I have used Rowan DK Cotton which is lovely to work with and feels so soft.

I did do some sorting until I came across this piece of wet felt that I made last year....


.....and some gorgeous dyed Mulberry Silk...


...pulled off strands and embellished...


...this piece is so soft and I love the vibrant colours, been thinking of making a much larger piece and perhaps making a waistcoat??!!
