As my beloved Bernina is still in the repair shop, this cold and damp weekend has been spent playing with the Pfaff embellisher and working on last Wednesday’s first lesson from Dale Rollerson. The first one is my answer to her challenge to make something using the first techniques we learnt. It is made from felt embellished with silk and woollen tops, then cut and woven together and stitched with simple running stitch. The flowers are similar, but have an additonal layer of pink prefelt on white felt, and then silk needled into it, the flower shapes cut and needled onto the base and then embroidered with french knots.
This little landscape, which is just bigger than a postcard, is again felt embellished with wool and silk tops, some knitting yarn, crewel wool and embroidered with knots, stem and straight stitches.
