Creating another piece of felt which is then embellished with stitch & beads, this is another creation showcasing landscape theme.
My husband made the wooden frame – wood and fibre seem to be a good marriage!
I am enjoying this technique – it comes to easily to my fingers. So much so, that it has become a MUST DO!
Feeling that I want to spend time experimenting with this technique and moving from small too larger pieces.
Using silk & wool rovings I created a felt background which was enhanced by hand stitch and beading. Some self-dyed threads and yarns were used.
Within this piece is the Mountmellick Stitch which recently was taught by Deirdre from Daughters of Dowling textile artist group. I did not connect them to each other as is traditionally done, but preferred to include some individual stitches. Can you spot them?
