framed, plus …

in between other projects and looking after the gallery, i’ve been layering some thread and wool snippings onto an A4-sized sheet of wool felt

then i needelfelted the whole thing before adding torn strips of fabric and ribbon and needlefelting it again

today, i did some free-motion stitching on the sewing machine in pink and silver grey threads to bring it all together

the photo above shows the completed first stage, just after i cut it up

the 3 inch x 3 inch squares will be embroidered and framed

i’m planning to use the leftover scraps (see below) to make fibre jewellery, which i’ve been wanting to try for a while

my daughter suggested making the strip into a cuff  – good idea!

will post the final ‘products’ when i’ve done the embroidery – finished one tonight …
