Felt Stargazer

Finally got a chance to finish my felted flower. This is my largest wool felt creation to date. The main portion was done with wet felting and the finishing work was needle felted.This homage to a Stargazer lily is 24" across and the center is about 17" high. I have been sort of obsessed with lilies ever since I went to the Philadelphia Flower Show last year. There were some magnificent displays and I am looking forward to going there next week, after I get back from Boston. Yes, I am heading north to Bean Town in FEB for my first big craft show of the new year. I've never done shows in that area, know nothing about Boston, so it should be an adventure!
Gotta start packing now.

  1. Wow! Your stargazer is stunning! should attract some attention in Boston. Good luck there. You'll love Boston if you get a chance to get away from the show; just bring your snowtires and prepare yourself for the worse drivers on the east coast!
