Valerie lead us in a damp but fun workshop onmaking felted flowers.  First a base shape is felted, and cut to the size and shape wanted.

Then, some additional fiber can be felted on to add detail

resulting in a lovely flower!

Beads and a pinback need to be added.

And they can be any color that amuses.

The best thing at Show and Tell was Heather’s amazing wall hanging. This is a hand painted silk warp, woven with a silk weft, that will be installed in the dining room of her client. The framework  will support it vertically and will give the effect of a  cascading waterfall. Sure hope we get to see some pictures of it in place!
