happy valentine's day

wire and fibre hearts

Happy Valentine's Day to all :)

It's kind of apt that I'm in the middle of working on wire and fibre hearts for an upcoming exhibtion "home si where the heart is" (stay tuned for more details). The three above are my first prototypes, needlfelted with some gorgeous hand-dyed roving from Yummy Yarn. After needlefelting, the hearts are washed at hhigh temperature to "set" the design. The end result is a little like watercolour ... at least, that's what it looks like to me :)
