Here's my last piece of 2016.  It was inspired by a small dyed piece of wool felt.....using hair clips as the resist.

It was paired with National Nonwoven's Woolfelt...detail above. 

 FURROWS  13" X 11.5"  © 2016
Resist dyed felted wool, wool felt, hand embroidered,
machine quilted & beaded.

NOTE FROM MARY:  Kathy inquired about how I prep my pieces for hanging.  A long ago post addresses my method for wool pieces....with an extra step if for some reason I feel the piece offers two hanging orientations.  Click here to learn more.  
Traditional fabric sleeves are still my preference for cottons/most woven fiber projects.

This is so very elegant! And the edge treatment is wonderful. How do you prep them for hanging...sleeve or something else? This one and your square flower one both make me thoughtful. Love them!

Love the scattering of beads. Beautiful sunset from a few days ago, looks like you are situated perfectly for sunsets.
