Half way there.

Boxing hares in a magical meadow.
Wet felted and then needle felted Merino wool. This one is about 45" x 33" I don't think I'd like to work any larger than this as the weight of the wet wool fibres and the physical nature of wet felting made it difficult. 
Next is free motion machine embroidery and a little hand embroidery. Hmmm....stuffing it under my little domestic sewing machine is going to be a challenge. I bet my little Husqvarna groans when she sees me coming at her with a bundle of felt,  and a box of threads. lol.
