In prgress photo, the olive thread was used on the lower edge of the bough, the more gold tone thread used on the top outline of the bough...subtle but important to me
Love my stash of embroidery threads and tools to make it a pleasure.  The needle threader is the most calming tool LOL
First layer are color blocks of Merino wool , then a random but thoughtful placement of flax, viscose, silk throwster, art yarns, silk hankies - wet felted with cool water and olive oil soap. The act of rolling, palming, lots more rolling until a felt fabric is achieved.
picture hanger hardware are sewn in place and keeping with the rustic theme a string of jute will allow for hanging!

Original art for your cabin, den, hallway, or whatever nook that when you see it a smile comes to your face.  This piece combines many techniques I enjoy; wet felting,  needle felting, and,  hand embroidery. 

Layers of texture and colors bring this design together. Backed with brick red wool felt that has a dark brown blanket stitch added. Finally, picture hanging hardware is sewn in  place and a piece of jute give the ability to hang in your favorite spot!

How it's made

First layer are color blocks of Merino wool , then a random but thoughtful placement of flax, viscose, silk throwster, art yarns, and silk hankies are wet felted with cool water and olive oil soap. The act of rolling, palming, lots more rolling, and fulling until a felt fabric is achieved.

Blended green wool is needle felts as boughs, then a multitude of hand embroidery to give detail.  A stiffener is applied to the back of the piece before adhering to the felt back.

Anchoring the picture are a couple of logs with other imagined vegetation.  The scene is reminiscent of hikes in the Olympic forest in Washington where I grew up. 

Approximately 18" H x 13" W, created in a smoke free environment
