I have started working on a really large piece which I hope to sneak peek soon. But I took a little break from that to create this newest piece. The colours of autumn are everywhere and hard to ignore and I felt I had to try and capture them in a small piece.
The hooked portion of this piece measures 8″ x 10″ and with the mat and frame it measures 10″ x 13″. I used a lot of different textured yarns- from nubbly to shiny- and some interesting materials such as strips of silk and Leicester locks sheared right from the sheep and then hand-dyed. The use of such bold colours is a bit of a departure for me but I really like how the colours all seem to work together and translate into the feel I was looking for.
This piece is now available for sale here.
