Despite the state of the outside world, I remain well and continue to ship orders. Canada Post sent a message to customers last night that they are suspending their delivery guarantees. I will continue to ship via Canada Post and apologize in advance should your package be delayed.
As a result of potential impacts related to our local facilities and air transportation, we are letting you know that effective today (March 18) Canada Post will be suspending our On-time Delivery Guarantees for all parcel services, until further notice. This means that some residents and businesses may begin to experience slower than normal delivery times.
I hope you are well and have an opportunity to relax with your fibre art projects!
This is a still life felting project I worked on during the autumn of 2018. I assembled this picture using a combination of wet felting, needle felting, as well as hand and free motion embroidery. I’m often asked what different fibres can be used for, so I though I’d share some of the materials used in this project.
A – This project started with a background made from natural white Merino pre-felt that was slightly larger than the finished picture.
B – The vase along with the flowers and leaves are made from Merino roving which has been blended to provide some shading and depth. Using multiple colours and densities of fibre help prevent flat looking areas of solid colour.
C – Strands of banana silk fibres in a complimentary colour were added to the table surface to make it more interesting.
