I am coming to realize that it can take me a very long time to finished a felted piece. In July 2015 I made a piece based on some photographs I had taken in 2014. The inspiration was wet lichen covered rocks.
Then I looked at this felted piece and thought what on earth will I do with this now ! For those of you who read this blog , might remember I eventually cut it up. A radical move , but I still could not finish it ! I loved the dark brown Masham surround and wanted to find away to bring it all together.
So I took it to a master class with Artybird and asked ,” what shall I do now”. Various suggestions were made mostly involving bringing it together as a piece. I thought about this , alongside the original inspiration for the piece and suddenly I could see a way forward. Organic stitching across the whole piece, along with the addition of some more fabric.
