NOT SURE I'M DOING THIS RIGHT ....



I'm not sure if I'm doing this right - Linda taught me the basics of needle felting the other week, but I keep straying into not so much felting (like the central area) to laying down threads and yarns. I like the result however, but forgot to take a picture before I added some gold machine embroidery (see left).

Then last night I sat in a bad light (not the world's best idea) and added all sorts of beads and sequins to it, and I'm rather pleased with the result!! Whether it's needle felting or not I do like it! I should add that it's only little - about 4" square - as I'm still exploring and not quite ready for larger pieces yet.

This will make a little art piece for my newly painted Studio (if I can ever persuade my beloved to finish the awkward bits).

It's beautiful and very definitely art ! And you used a needle to felt, so definitely needlefelting!

Linda said...

It doesn't matter what label you put on it Rosie...but I'd choose 'absolutely gorgeous little piece of artwork'
I love it!!
(So glad I've managed to inspire you - its usually the other way round!)

wonderful Rosie, taking a technique and making it your own is what you are very good at....lovely results....don't stop

good luck in getting the final touches on your studio....sometimes things just don't move as fast as we'd like, do they :)
