This post is being written with a bit of apprehension because it's the very last piece from my stack of resist dyed felted wool. Oh ya....I gotta make more....however this isn't a process that can be easily accomplished without a significant amount of equipment and supplies, which I don't personally own. (But I plan to!)
It's been so comforting to know when I needed handwork....that within an hour of auditioning beads/threads I could have needle in hand! Naturally, that was only the beginning...a lot of thought and experimenting regarding the surface design was required. Often that meant a lot starting - stopping - removing - and finally restarting.
Okay, okay.....so for awhile I'll be exploring other ideas, but I will come back to this exciting medium soon.
Here's the piece before pressing/trimming the edges and stabilizing.
Now with some embroidery.
