A new project

Recently I went to a workshop at Clare Bullock's studio where we made some felt and then stencilled on it with acrylic paint.

I really loved this technique and fortunately at home I already had some cream, pale brown and pale orange wool tops.  So I spent 3 happy hours making 9 pieces of felt.  The photos show the front and back of each pair.

I used the various stencils and thermofax screens that I have which make me think of Venice.










I tried several ways of laying these out together.  Here are a couple of arrangements.


I shall handstitch on each small piece and then assemble the whole piece.  The pieces may not be put back together in either formation shown here.  A lot will depend on the stitching.

I'll let you know how I get on.

Thanks for joining me today.
