Favorite technique? To work and play intuitively. I started with black Kona, discharged it with Soft Scrub over a freezer paper mask. I tried to make it look like a tree! Then using my needle punch attachment, I started adding a variety of fibers (noticing how unbalanced my fiber stash is... hard to find greens and browns!), including yarns (twisted and untwisted like roving) and angelina. Quilted with variegated rayon (tree) and Aurifil wool (in the black). Click on the image to see the bigger version and better detail... hard to photograph!
Thanks, Carole, for a great challenge!
