Two More Felted Pieces

Just a quick check in. Sorry to have been absent from blogging for so long. In my last post I showed a couple of felted pieces I had done and promised to show some more.

This first one is a desertscape.


















This second one is an interpretation of another Van Gogh piece.

















These two pieces were done completely by hand; none of the felting was done on the embellisher. If you compare them to the two pieces in my last post, you can see the difference from hand felting over the machine felting. Neither piece is actually matted; I just placed the mat to show how they would look with a double mat.

Hi!
When other people look at my embroidery and exclaim, "Oh, you must have such patience", I smile inside. I know that no patience is required because I find stitching so relaxing. Yet, I am so totally blown away by the dedication I know it must have taken in order to create these miniature masterpieces...I just don't have that sort of patience...or relaxation...but you obviously do and the results are superb. Truly wonderful. I can see the difference and admire your keen eye, your sensitive handling of materials, and your decision to do what is necessary to end up with the results that are pleasing to you. Many congratulations. These are great.
Susan

Thank you Micki for your heart-felt comment for Blue. Sure get attached to the little characters!

Your felting of nature is fabulous! You are so talented at this. Your flowers in the last post done with teh embellisher are great too.

Have a good weekend. Hugs, Cat

These are lovely, and the matting adds so much. I can't imagine doing the hand felting.

Hi Micki
What beautiful pieces, I do a little bit of felting but am nowhere near your standard so am very much in awe!
I do love my new embellisher and hope to have the time to get to know it soon.
So sorry to read you had to leave the CG group, hope all goes well for you.
