    Love it, love it, love it! Love the colors and the textures, and the way you blended them. Did I see some embellishments, such as beads, peaking through some of the fabric? How in the world did you do this?

    For all of you that has asked the question; "How did you do that," I had a panel that I started thread painting and got rather bored with; so, I decided to iron stabilizer to the back, started needle felting and this is how it came out.

    I used real silk fibers, curly wool, silk throwster's waste, silk rods, silk cocoons, silk paper, feathers, mulberry bark, angelina fibers, other fibers, buttons and crystals. I love color and am a very outside of the box person with a AAA personality. I made the roses out of silk rods, and cut the cocoons on the bias to make the flower heads on the blue stalks. Step outside of the box and let your imagination flow; it sure is fun!

    Thank you for all of your compliments and kind words. I have made others and will post them in the near future.
