Rooted Remains


I just finished a new nature scene I've been working on.  The seeds of which were no doubt planted by my walk in the woods this past weekend.  My muse seems to hang out amongst the moss and mushrooms. 

This is wool, needlefelted around a base constructed of felted sweater wool.  No glue was used. 




If I were wee, I would sit on this stump and curl up under its roots.  I would. 



Wishing you all a happy weekend.  May you all find a mossy place to sit, if even for a little while.

oh Lisa ... Lisa ... I'm currently at my parents', so I couldn't leave a comment on Flickr, but I couldn't wait until tomorrow evening to tell you how much this new piece of yours is a masterpiece. The curly wool mimics the moss so cutely, and every detail you have added is extremely gorgeous. I really wish I could touch it, it must be quite a tactile experience !

Lisa what an amazing artist you are! I hope that some little hands and some not so little hands will have as much fun playing with this enchanted stump as I have had just looking at it. WONDERFUL!

Lisa, this piece is stunning! I really do want to reach out and touch that curly green moss and feel the texture of the tree trunk. I wonder if you have ever thought of filming the creation of one of your needlefelted projects? It would be a work of art.

So charming!

I'd love to sit there while reading a good book and just listening to the world go by.

Hope you're having a great weekend.
