The decorators and repair men turned up at 8 this morning so I really had to stay out of their way so I made a nest in my workroom. Remember those lovely soft wool tops and the urge to relate to cave paintings in my previous posts? well today I got chance to sit and work at the embellisher to see what would evolve. I must admit that I don't always start with a design, often the fabric or fibres will speak out.
Chris Gray kindly sent me details of rock carving that she had come across her travels and armed with ideas from these, I plucked out some fibre and went for it.
The base fabric on both of these cylinders, containers, pots or whatever they are, is acrylic felt with wool tops and wool nepps embellisher on top. They are stitched together with yarn spun from the same fibres.
the next one is an experiment on line drawing ie just one needle in the embellisher and worked from the reverse ( the black acrylic felt)
