Second Quarter Challenge Finally Done.

That’s right I have it done and with days to spare. 12 whole days at that! Here are the details of the challenge if you missed them.  Challenge

I have know what I was going to do for ages I just hadn’t done it. I like Stephenson’s mirror pieces but I also liked the flower pieces so I decided to combine them.

I used a thin piece of black prefelt I had and doubled it up for the back ground. I then used my own handspun for the stems. I added silk throwers waste for the flowers and then more hand spun for the spirals. I wasn’t sure how everything would stick. There was not a lot of fuzzy about any of it. It worked out fine though.

I forgot to take a picture of it before felting but here it is finished. I like it a lot more than I thought I was going to.

I found this frame on my front porch ( have no idea why it was there) and laid it over the picture and I like it even more.

If you haven’t done a piece, go ahead and give it a try, you still have time.

    Very cool! The frame really finishes it nicely.

  3. Good job. Wish someone would put that frame on my front porch. I am too far behind to catch up. Too many projects on my table. Enjoy seeing everyone’s interpretation.

    That was a clever idea combining them both! I like the frame too. Oh and the fancy toe-nail polish 😉

    Looks great Ann – the frame really helps to crop the piece nicely. Great combination of ideas 🙂
