Felting

Wall Hanging

I saw an image somewhere of a cross that was sort of a swoop and liked it, so this came about. The background is about 14 by 20 inches and is black wool from a friend. I felted the cross using Merino roving in two colors.

I keep buying the pearls and chunky Mother of Pearl shapes and rarely use them, so this seemed to be the place. Unfortunately, the closeup just flashed back at me. There are three different shapes. I was going to put seed beads on it and decided that they would be lost and weren’t necessary.

The background is machine quilted echoing the cross shape.
