work in progress and a lovely anglesey holiday

Hello lovelies! How are you? We are good - just back from a weeks holiday in Anglesey - its been beautiful - but more of that later! Whilst there I have been working on a needle felted picture that my friend Helen bought for me for my 50th - it was a kit and I have really enjoyed doing it - its all complete apart from the beading and embroidery... here are the steps I took...

I used unicorn wool to cover the back of a large canvas.....

Next I used green felting wool to add the grass and a combination of yarn and coloured wool to add the first flowers...

Next I added the two blue flowers....

I added the green leafy parts next - and then added more leaves and another flower in the front which I haven't pictured as yet... I am hoping to finish this soon!!

Its been a lovely week in Anglesey - here's a flavour ....
