Letter Keeper I received

This letter keeper, made of embossed felt and black felt applique, was what I received in a swap.  I sent off a letter keeper of the same size in green with contrasting embroidery floss hand stitching — wish I kept a picture of it!


I used dark denim for the base, and burlap for the background.  The roof is a scrap of houndstooth fabric, the door is red felt, and the house white cotton.  The windows were cut from decorative paper, to which I added light blue paint and drew the panes with a silver permanent marker.  The grass…

The muslin is heavily machine-stitched to a…

Designed and made a 12 inch prototype of a fantasy bird in felt. The actual birds – three of them – will measure more than 6 feet from tip of beak to tip of tail, and will serve as Spring/Summer window dressing in a neighborhood gift shop.  Never worked that large before – woo-hoo!!!


this a needlefelted image of my daughter. I drew with merino wools and some wool knitting wool for her hair. The face was needlefelted onto cotton quilt batting, and then the finer details such as eyes were hand stitched with dmc thread to create definition.

redroad/blue sky

This is a 1.5×2 metre artquilt made from hand dyed wool prefelt, which is then, needlefelted and overlaid with assorted cotton fibres, merino wool and fine silk. After carefully creting the background the piece was machine quilted and heavily nneedlefelted  to manipulate and create the look of a road after the rain and muddy. The…
