"Checkered Openings"

Right, so its felted, but I'm not sure its finished.

Perhaps it needs some stitching, perhaps it needs a textile bundle in the loops; not sure yet.

Ode to Jude - checkerboards

This is a work in progress - a prefelt checkerboard falling off the right hand corner - been thinking about weaving checkerboards for weeks now thanks to Jude's fantastic vlogs on her work in progress 'Magic'.

I'll let you know how it progresses.

Recent Felting Activity

So those two above are of a very large piece of felt I made this week; dry and in mid rolling - I used some lovely 'Spring Green' plant dyed wool from Wingham Wool Works that I have been hanging on to for a while. The piece has now been posted to my talented sister who is currently making a surprise something for Mothers Day... collaboration of the creative daughters - will post a few pics when its done!

This is a detail of a small piece of merino felt with some skrim added to the surface.

This is an experiment with some white merino and some muslin.

And this is an experiment with contrasting colours and cutting shapes out at the prefelt stage.
Its been a busy felting week!
