Yet Another Table Runner

As promised, another nuno felt table runner.
This one is really long and looks great on the table.

I especially like the effect of all the chunky stuff I used to embellish it.

It had been raining and finally a sunny day.
So I took my newly finished piece out and about
in the yard to photograph it.

I hung it from the rose trellis.

I laid it in the dry river bed.

I let it flap gently in the breeze.

Another Table Runner

The table runner idea has taken off in my head. Here is the second one. I have almost finished a third one, and have plans for several others. This design is an abstract exploration of nuno felting with a variety of different materials, such as cloth, yarn, and fiber, to see how they work together.

Layering bulky yarn, and textured yarn under the sheerest gauze,

As colors blend in this piece of felt, it takes on the feeling of a watercolor study.

The elements are strong, and the colors rich in the final result,
a runner for our buffet.
