Needlefelting Part 2

These are the pieces I made at the local  EGA's needlefelting workshop.  I need to harden up the flower and both pieces need beads, lots of beads.  And stitching too!  Abi from High Prairie Fibers taught the workshops.                                                             

Needlefelting Workshop Part 1

My local EGA had Abi from High Prairie Fibers do two workshops on needlefelting.    The top photo is of the flowers dd made during the morning session.  The bottom photo is of the scrapcloth she made in the afternoon.  She has decided to free-motion quilt the scrapcloth and make it into a purse.  The orange flower will be added to the purse.

Very Little Stitching

I thought I would have time for Spring Splendor, but life got in the way.
Winter Woods is slowly coming along.  I like to see the photos I have posted previously so I can really see that I have made some progress.
I wanted to post something about the new classes offered through Shining Needle Society, but my allergy medicine is fuddling my little mind.  Maybe tomorrow...

Garden Path by Marie Campbell

Last night I worked on Spring Splendor, and ripped out stitches on Spring Splendor.  It took 3 tries to get my gold to look ok....I will try to post a picture of it tomorrow.
This piece is a Designers Across America from EGA.  It was offered in the March 2012 newsletter and many ladies in my local guild signed up for it.  It is a nametag when finished and is completely beaded.  I love to bead and was able to get almost everything done.  But now I am at the "boring" part.  Above the heart and where my name is placed, a zillion seed beads need to be stitched on individually.  I am working on it when my brain is tired and I can't count.  Hopefully this piece will not end up in the black hole known as my basement where many UFO's languish.

A flower finished!

I was able to finish the last petal and start on a new tulip on Sunday.  The problem with this piece is that it requires lots of concentration.  I cannot just pick it up and start working.  But with the heat this week I will have an excuse to ignore my garden.

Another Petal

I finished another petal on my tulip.  Hopefully I will have time this week to get the last one done.  Thank goodness I do not have to help extract honey this week.  Although  the garden is crying for attention.

July Wipocalypse-Winter Woods

I have not made much progresson this piece, but I have been trying to get a few stitches in a few days each week.  I would love to finish this in time to give to my mother-in-law for Christmas.

Busy Bees

Last week was very busy.  I helped with VBS and helped ds extract honey.  I have done some stitching, but very little.  Hopefully after the 4th of July, I will have a little more stitching time.  I am not holding my breath.
