I completed this piece several weeks ago but don't think I blogged about it. It's wet felted and hand stitched. Not my usual colors and I'm not sure I like it all that much. It seems a bit busy to me.
I did finish my Traveling Page for June based on the seashore but can't show photos yet. Next theme due in July is castles. As there are few castles in Montana, I'm having a bit of a problem coming up with inspiration for this one. I'm thinking about basing it on gargoyles but wasn't sure if gargoyles were used more on cathedrals as opposed to castles. Anyone know?

Here's a close up.
Here's the back. I used a quote by Albert Camus. "Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower." I am now working on my page for June with the theme of "seashore". I haven't gotten very far but hopefully, will get it done in the next couple of weeks.

These are the scarves that I overdyed. They were a bit namby pamby before and I like them better now. The colors in the photos are a bit off, these are even a deeper color than shown.
Here's a green one. I'm thinking about doing a bit of discharging on this one to make it a bit more interesting.
This one was pink and yellow and now is a deep salmon with orange and spots of a deep plum.
This one was originally done with spectral bleeding tissue at a class I took, I then shibori dyed it with maroon but it needed a color to bring it all together. So I overdyed it with Aztec gold. It looks much more wearable now.
This one was much more yellow before I overdyed it. I don't think very many people wear yellow so I think green will sell better.
