The first cards for Clotilde have begun to trickle in. I've extended the deadline until June 1, because contacting her friends, fans, and business buddies has proved daunting. She touched a LOT of lives and I don't want to miss anyone!
The needle-felted piece above is 5" x 7" and sits an interesting little frame. It is a class sample for my online Extreme Needle Felting class, but was made for a friend who is going through a tough time.
The tactility of the roving, yarns, velvet, and beads just makes me smile! The next step is dyeing the roving and yarn with Earth Safe Finishes Colorants. Initial tests were most successful and I can't wait to dye enough for an entire project!
A gallery has already expressed interest in carrying these for Mother's Day. Yahoo!
