Surf's Up for my 200th Post
This piece was done for the October challenge on the Felting Forum, "Sea and Sky".
I used a combination of wools, scrim, silk and a recycled fulled sweater for the backing.
It's called "Surf's Up". It's all done on my Janome needle felting machine.
Have you heard about the TV program "Talking Threads" in the UK? You can watch it online on Country Channel TV. There will be 10 episodes. The first two are already available. It has some great instructions on various fiber arts. There is also a great series called Inspirations about 5 textile artists in the UK. Just put "textiles" in the search engine at Country Channel TV and it will come up.
This is my 200th post today. In celebration, I am having a give away prize of woolly goodies (merino, mixed breed wool, Wensleydale locks, silk etc.) to a randomly picked commenter. All you need to do is comment on this post and let me know the colors you prefer and I'll dye them to your choice. If you don't like to use wool (or are allergic to wool) please let me know and I'll come up with another prize for you if you win. I'll do the drawing on Halloween (Oct. 31) and announce the winner on November 1st. Make sure that I have a way to contact you (I get a lot of comments that are no reply blogger comments and sometimes it is difficult to contact people). Thanks to everyone who reads my blog, I always appreciate your comments and suggestions. Hope you have a great weekend.
