An Abundance of Felt

Another felt vessels is finished. Unfortunately I neglected to take pictures before I sent it off to the library exhibit. Rats. I do have an in-the-work picture and one from the exhibit at the library that I can share. Real pictures will have to wait for its return.

I have entitled it “Abundance.”

??????????I started the embellishment on this side which has the dripping red that I love. This stitching was taking a long time to complete and time was a resource I was running out of. This is all the stitching that the blue part ended up with. I had to turn my attention to the pink rim and the red flare. A bit of pink silk and needle felted yellow wool roving highlighted with rows and rows of running stitch transformed the top of the vessel. The flare has a couched yarn and some pistil stitches and detached chains with a long tails.

There is one more felt vessel that I am working on. It wasn’t finished in time for the exhibit. I’m almost finished with it now and should have pictures to put up soon.

    WOW! Lucy I love this piece. Beautiful colors and I just love the whole design of it. Wow

  2. A very dramatic piece! My sympathy with the photography problem – it’s much harder than it looks, isn’t it!

    Hi Lucy,

    Your creations are always very beautiful! However…

    Your blog page comes to me as plain text on a yellow background. The images don’t appear and the links don’t work.

    I would like to unsubscribe, but that link doesn’t work either. I’m sorry. I hope you can take care of this from your end.
