Sugar Skull

I needle felted this Skull out of wool roving that I washed and carded myself. I needle felted some of the designs, and embroidered the rest with floss and crewel yarn. The heart is silk ribbon embroidery. The flowers in the eyes are tiny ombred french silk millinery flowers that I am obsessed with making…

"Land of Milk & Honey"

This art bra is one of many that I have created.  The others were either gifts or donated to raise money for several different cancer-related charities.  I am a *** cancer survivor.

My entry in the Post Challenge is hand embroidered and beaded.  I used a small…
