Four days later...

Have been  planning this in my head for a while - of course it hasn't turned out as intended, but that can be the beauty of felt and the numbness of frozen hands this week, hasn't helped.  I do like the finished item, though.  

First three layers in cream onto felt.  Carded green, and blues together

Incorporated previously felted bits and mohair wool

Needle felted the bits together and then bunged into washing machine. Kitchen floor too cold to felt on. Once it emerged from machine, I reassessed, cut, reassembled and also machine embroidered felted pieces on top of material.
