One of the reasons I love working with Nuno felted wool so much is because once a section is made....it's pretty much ready to use as a background. Unlike cotton patchwork where the prep. is the design!
I'm now working on one of the smaller pieces that measures about 9" x 7". For a piece this size, I'm breaking my own rule of always beading in a hoop or PVC frame. You may notice that it has been stabilized. I used Pellon's non-fusible lightweight interfacing to add strength and prevent distortion.
Both hand embroidery and beadwork will be featured with no particular design idea in my head. I'm just going to meander around on it and see what develops. Of course that may (probably will) mean some 'unstitching' is also ahead. Overall, I find that to be a very relaxing way to spend the evening since I'm not in any way in control of the TV remote!
