Field of Poppies in Needle Felt

Field of PoppiesIsrael’s national flower is the poppy. In the spring, fields are carpeted with these amazing wild flowers of red petals with black centers. I had this in mind when I composed me latest needle felt design, which I call ” Field of Poppies”.

It’s made of a medley of wool fibers sculpted together in a soothing composition. I hope you like it.

It’s available on my Etsy shop. So, come visit.

Ahh, Autumn

I thought I’d try to do something new, having autumn in mind. So I went looking for maple leaves. Well, the tree across from us is a maple tree, but it’s still green. That’s what happens when you live in the Middle East. Never mind, I can imagine fall colors — that’s what makes it an art quilt.
