Stone Walls

Building stone walls is extremely time consuming. Each individual stone is felted, then they are layered one by one onto the felted background. The herbs, plantings and tree details are next. This rendering of J's Restaurant at the Nashoba Valley Winery is before the new outdoor patio was constructed.

Polymer Noses

I'm trying something new on my felted animals, polymer noses and beaded eyes. I like testing new techniques to see if they enhance or distract from my overall intent. The puppies and some of the other animals periodically want makeovers, so this may be what they've been looking for - stay tuned!

Scarf in progress

I started this scarf in early February and try to add a few rows every evening. This has been a fun and challenging project. Pattern is from "scarfSTYLE" by Pam Allen.

Knit with 100% worsted weight Nature Spun yarn.

Here are a couple of my most recent felt creations.
Maggie's brindle coloring and wrinkles added depth
and personality.

Needle felt on wool fabric pillow - size ~9"x12"

Monet's paintings are very inspirational and to
recreate with wool fibers was a satisfying challenge.

Wet & Needlefelt -based on Monet's ~15" x ~17"
