Isn’t this sweet? It’s the first needle-felted landscape for my new needle-felting class that will launch on on March 27.

This will be needle-felting by machine, meaning embellishing machine, or needle tool and mat. The class plan is pretty ambitious and packed with information and exercises. This landscape is from Week #3 when we start felting in deliberate patterns. I love the depth the poppies add as they recede into the distance.

It also illustrates two ways of blending colors of roving.

There is so much potential in needle felting and the roving colors are so yummy! A quick visit to Ebay reveals scads of hand-painted roving in wool, bamboo, rayon, angora, mohair, tencel, silk, soy silk, and more. I want to try it all!
