My last finished sample

Well this is my last sample that I have done for the Felting Collection Unit.

Dandelion Seed Head

An embellished piece of felt. Hand dyed wet felted background, Needle felted seed head and hand sewn seed wings.

I'm not one to do hand sewing and I must admit my teacher has had to push me into doing it... as in shouting at me, kicking me up the backside!! But....... (don't tell her ;o) I actually enjoyed doing this and it will be put into my dinning room when the end of year exhibition finishes.

Now to organise how I'm going to present my collection of samples and also the boring bit....... finish off the portfolio!

I think it may look something like this

All my samples put on a large branch acting as leaves. As my theme for my work is Fantasy Woodland. Might have to see if I can find another branch which is a bit bigger.

Anyway to finish off seeming i have said about the end of year exhibition, it would be rood of me not to give you the details.

Its going to be a collection of Embroidered and Textile Art made by City and Guild Creative Textile students, Tutored by Cherrilyn Tyler.

This also includes all the collection of silk paper creations exhibited at the Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch Exhibition at the NEC, in March this year. Of cause Ditzy will be there for her final showing!

I love all the texture and dimension you got with the dandelion - great job! Wasn't it worth all that hand sewing?
