REACHING HIGH 5.5" x 6.5"  © 2013
Artist resist dyed felted wool, hand embroidered & bead embellished.

As I mentioned yesterday, I've been playing around with beading techniques that provide interesting dimension in my work.  This little dome does just adds visual height but doesn't overpower.  I'm looking forward to sharing them in a new workshop I'm developing.

The beads look so good on the felt. I also love the little acorns from a few posts back.

I am always inspired by your work. Lovely.

Hi Mary!

I love the "branching" kind of effect you've created with the beads...really lovely and makes me want to stop and really examine it more fully. Really nice job!

ohhh I like it! and dare I ask why someone who is trying to retire is developing new lesson plans? grin!

Hi, Mary. I like that sort of organic design of the beads and also the bit of shine that the beads add, which contrasts with the felt. I agree with Nina Marie. It really doesn't sound like you're retiring!
best, nadia
