Mother Earth - my needle felted figure
Okay, so refreshed and with camera in hand, here is my needle felted creation from last night. I had so much fun doing this, I don't know why it's taken m so long to have a go at it. I think I felt daunted at the prospect of needle felting a figure, but it actually came together quite easily.
I have made her with some lovely natural coloured wool with a little dyed green merino that I had. I used these colours intentionally, thinking that my first figure should really be Mother Earth and she is now gracing the Season Corner.
The white is the Dorset Poll wool I am usually spinning, the brown is an unknown wool that I am spinning, I think from the staple and feel of it, it is a Shetland, and the hair is natural Black Lincoln curly fleece.
