Talu at Kermain

This gorgeous, friendly goat was happily munching the weeds and brambles on top of the hedge (talu) near the Manoir at Kermain, about 2 kilometers away from our house and as I already had an idea forming in my mind about the wildlife and fauna on our local hedges he just had to be part of it.

Mermaids


Wet felt technique in merino wool with tussah silk fibres, seed beads and embroidery silk.

She started out as a very demure young mermaid but in the process of wet felting she turned into a real floozy!

I made all the background colours with the usual hot water and soap, but used plastic to prevent some areas from felting together, ie the waves. I then embroidered the surface of the tail with embroidery silks, needlefelted the limpets and mussels and the spume on the waves. The bubbles on the wave edges are seed beads, hand stitched. The tail fins come from a little net bag that contained jewellery.

Every time I say I'm going to make things simpler they just get more complicated!

Angels

Made in merino wool with tussah silk and synthetic yarn details. Made using the welt felt technique then the fine detail added with a needle felt tool. The belts are synthetic thread with metal charms.
I am really pleased with this one...the angels have a lot of character  and their hair worked out really well with the tussah silk fibres.

Fabriqué en laine mérinos avec de la soie tussah et les détails de fils synthétiques. Fabriqué à partir de la technique traditional humide puis la finesse des détails ajoute avec un outil de feutre aiguilleté . Les ceintures sont des fils synthétique avec breloques en métal.
Je suis vraiment heureux avec celui-ci ... les anges ont beaucoup de caractère et leurs cheveux a très bien fonctionné avec les fibres de soie tussah
