I chose to use blue for my challenge piece, because it has always been my favourite colour. This time I combined a nuno felted background, with crochet details that I needle felted in place. I enjoyed making this, and am pleased with the result.
One of my cats, Maisie, made it quite difficult to make this wallhanging. Whether it was on a table for me to look at while deciding the next step, or on my desk ready for needlefelting, she took to sitting in the middle and curling up for a wee cat nap. She has long fur, and she’s lucky I didn’t accidentally needle felt her tail into the flower bed. I couldn’t have done that, because she’s grey, not blue, so I pushed her tail gently out of the way and worked around her.
