I manged three pieces and some silk dyeing today. I finished all my "obligations" yesterday .... well most of them. You know the list...the bills, the laundry, the dog walking, the shopping, the dinner making,.....it goes on and on .... doesn't it? But today I got to do the laundry while I did felt. YEAH!
I managed to dye some dark green silk....no pictures of that. But it is darker colored for leaves and stems rather than background. I need to start thinking about the green sections to connect the squares. But I'm not quite there yet.
I did 3 pieces ... I also did some more drawings. I came up with 3 more flowers. But I just didn't seem to do the run as last time. So I put them under the cutting board to decrease the paper curl and moved on to felting. My favorite.
This was the silk lay out ... before felting. I used the tumeric dyed silk as the background....with the green prefelt it was too much. It really overpowered the flowers. It will need some serious embroidery to save this one....and I really liked the design.
It is too green overall. I'm disappointed in how it turned out... sigh.
This is the layout. Again the tumeric but this time the colors were bolder and the background was red. Making the color a bit more lively.
I'm happier with this. But with 20 to make...I'll most likely keep the washout snow
drops but the Beebalm is obviously more lively.
The last piece is a trillium. I'm afraid the color of the photograph is not a lovely as the real piece. It is much deeper and more .... I don't know.... but the color is real.. I'm happy with this piece also.
Well, that's it for this weekend. I wish you all a Happy Turkey Day....I only have Thursday off...but hope to do more felting the weekend after.
