Happy Easter Everyone.

Susan the base of My Needle Felted Landscape is 100% wool felted and cut a wee bit bigger then the size I want the landscape to become.. Then I add to layers of Core batting and then I add all the color layers. No canvas or stretch muslin.

Terry thank you for your lovely comment. I truly enjoy creating wool landscapes. Hugs Judy

Your crazy quilt blocks are wonderful!  I love the color and the ribbon embroidery. That's something I would like to try my hand at...


Your wool paintings are cool!  What is the base? Do you work directly on a stretched canvas, or you stretch muslin over a frame?  Just curious. I love what you've done!

Susan Cuss,

What a sweet design!  And I love the bead accents! So beautiful!

Sigh... all this wonderful work makes my fingers itch to get on the ball!! ;)  Happy Easter all!  <3

Hi everyone!  I just completed the April HEX LABS "Umbrella & Flowers" designed by Shari Jensen of StitchMAP, and thought I would share. Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.

Hello Everyone,

I just created a Wool Painting with lots of embroidery and beading. I call this art piece "Spring Blooming Hedgerow" and I have dedicated it to my UK friends because their beautiful country inspired me to create it.

Beautiful piece, you have captured so much in your painting.  Great work.
