Nuno Felt With Embedded Object

Yesterday, I received a recorded message from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department regarding the triple digit weather, especially for Gilroy, San Martin and Los Gatos, advising the residents to stay inside until Friday.  It’s not about “poor air quality,” it’s about the heat and dehydration.  No physical activity except for getting to the mall or movie theater, in order to take advantage of the air conditioning.  Okay, so I listened yesterday and seized the opportunity to read a novel, Tell The Wolves I’m Home, by Carol Rifka Brunt.

Today, however, I stretched the rules just a little.  My last post described wet felting with an embedded object.  Why not try Nuno Felting with an embedded object? Hmmm…good idea!  The silk used for this project was upcycled from a dress purchased at my local thrift store.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.
