Almost a year ago
a dear Stitch'nBitch friend from Rotterdam
asked me about the black-and-white felting
I did for the felting-exchange back then.
I kind of got a commission to make a bigger piece
just like those (which were post card size)
All this time
that commission was somewhere in the back of my mind,
but I never came to work out my ideas for it.
Untill this week !
I made five little sketches (no bigger than 4 cm)
chose one and started to lay out the merino wool tops
some viscose strips for the nuno parts.
White I had enough, but the black and gray were my last bits.
I ended up with the desired square of 30 x 30 cm.
When it was completely dry I started stitching
with black cotton and white silk thread.
(I used paper templates to keep my circles steady)
This is the finished piece
and I named it
"Moon, where are you ?"
Well, here she is ..... !
My dear friend liked it and it will get a place on the wall
in her new house
It's well known that : one thing leads to another,
that's true for felting as well
So I made the next square and started stitching on that one.
