Well hello there! Nice to see you again. Thank you for the lovely quilt comments you left on my last post :)
There has been a bit of wet felting going here recently, complimented as usual by a little machine and hand embroidery. I've tried to keep the embroidery to a minimum to let the wool take centre stage on these smaller pieces.
Inspired by the views from my attic window, Swaledale sheep, gentle hills and the odd farmhouse. It's a good job I don't need inspiration today as it's thick fog outside, it looks as though Mother Nature has pulled a white sheet up over her head and is hiding away.
They are all worked to quite a small scale, about A4 size which means I can experiment a little as I don't usually do landscapes. They all differ slightly as I've changed the way I've used the wool in each one to see what works best.
It was nice to have something I could hold easily in my hand to embroider as usually I'm fighting with much larger pieces.
This last one is a little bigger as it is a commission piece destined for the USA complete with one black sheep and a thatched cottage. I hope the lady is question likes it, fingers crossed.
