Here's a look at what I've been working on for the past few days. I did a little writing in my journal while I was away last weekend and usually with writing comes doodling as well. I just couldn't wait to get back to my needle and thread(O: I have no idea what this will be used for. I just started it and can't seem to put it down. It is a tiny tapestry measuring about 4" X 6" (the size of a standard photo). I may actually frame it when I'm finished. I started drawing out the face and before I knew it she had wings a halo, a dress and beams of light shining off her. So what was meant to be the start of a new barrette design has turned into a tiny tapestry. There is still a lot to be done to this piece but this is what I've done so far.
I am completely self taught at needlepoint so if anyone has any recommendations on special needles they use or fabric they work with please let me know. I'm just working on felt at the moment because I like to use that texture for my faces but I know there are other special tapestry fabrics. Does anyone have any favorite materials for this medium?
