Jude’s Twister

A tornado or twister is a violent and rapidly rotating column of air which is in contact with both the ground and the base of a cumulonimbus cloud.  Whilst to the observer, from a safe distance, a tornado can be a spectacular sight, to those in it’s path it leaves chaos and devastation.

I hope I never experience the real thing, my twister is soft and gentle and would not hurt a fly. The base and funnel are made of felt whilst the decoration is mesh and freeform crochet and its stands approximately twelve inches high.



  1. Oh my! A huge tornado hit my house in March and took out almost every tree in my yard but left the house with roof and deck damage; so i never thought I'd "like" a tornado. This one is awesome with the height and shape implying its force. I "like" it!

    1. Thank you so much Margaret, I was thinking of you when I made it. I'm pleased to see your 'new' garden taking shape.

  2. Wow!!! I never imagined to create a "twister"! And this is so cool! Your use of texture is astounding! Let's pray that your twister will serve to keep any real ones at bay!

  3. Judith, this tornado piece drew to its mysterious and beautiful swirl of fibers and intricate stitches!
