A flower for my Mother

A flower for my Mother, originally uploaded by confections.

I included this needlefelted rose in the Mother's Day package for my Mother. I made it from some handpainted Targhee sheepsroving that I had in my stash. It has a little nub on the back which can easily accommodate a pin without distorting the flower if she chooses to wear it on a hat or lapel or handbag. I love needlefelting little items like this. Most of the ones I make are more three dimensional, but I'm experimenting with different syles at the moment.

I'm off to a weaving guild presentation tonight which will be a hands-on demonstration of painting a silk scarf. I have done some of that in my time, but a refresher will be a great boost to my cross-crafting addiction!
