Using my current favourite colour combo of green and yellow (this is supposed to be a mustardy yellow, unfortunately my camera seems to have interpreted this as golden yellow), last night I was fiddling around cutting out leaves from some felted wool.
'Felted wool' is wool that is woven and then felted, as opposed to 'wool felt' that is just wool fibres just smooshed together and pressed out. I learnt that from Leonie who one of the proprietor's of a wonderful quilt shop in Hobart, called the Quilted Crow.
They have a luscious array of felted wool.
I think this is destined for a cushion, and I'm still thinking of the best way of attaching the leaves....either using a running stitch like the ribbon shown, or machine stitched down their middles. Any other suggestions?
I just need to keep the symmetry.
I wonder what other lovely creative people are up to today? - I am heading over here to Kirsty's to have a look. I missed last weeks Creative Space, Thursday just came and went without me even realising it. It's been lots of fun to particpate so far this year.
