Having been asked to create a handmade wall piece to hang in a local farmhouse, my recent time has gone into wet felting and then stitching to create texture and visual interest in this piece.
The request was to portray a feeling of country landscape, using a contemporary approach.
This photo gives you a glimpse of my work in progress, before completion.
I welcome your comments.

Whilst literature has introduced me to the mysterious craft of dyeing with plant material, it is the experimenting that has brought satisfying results. Along the way came disappointments …. But then some mind blowing results traversed my way.

Love to hear your reaction to these.
