Book on Felting

Title page for Art in Felt & Stitch 

In this book, Moy Mackay creates painterly pictures by wet felting.  Her process instructions are clear and the steps are photographed making them easier to follow.  The book includes chapters on still life, animals, flowers, and landscapes.  Each section has photos of her work that provide inspiration and a detailed project with directions.  Moy uses many different fibers in her felting and adds stitching to provide details. She, also, gives full explanations of her equipment and materials.  The book is a great instructive resource, and I love to just look at the photos of her work.

Makin' Progress

Rockefeller Rug

Making progress on the new rug.  This is a change of pace for me in color and design.  The rug is fun to hook...each little piece is a creation by itself.

Fiber Sculpture

I'm always interested in seeing the work of other artists.  Gloria McRoberts is a decorative fiber artist who uses natural fibers as her sculpture medium adding texture and movement to her pieces. She uses wool, cotton, linen, and other natural fibers in her impressive pieces.  You can see them on her website.

A Rug Update

Making progress on my new rug design.  You can see where I added some quillies from the old wool blanket that I dyed.
