recycled wool prison blankets

 I have a embellisher machine and started messing around with wool and yarns. Using a cotton batting as a base different yarns and wool roving  were added for texture. Additional embroidery was done over the surface to create these mini landscapes. This piece is very heavy and a nice way to use up what was thrown away.
The camera card did not have any close ups?? will have to add some at a later date. Beading was added to the organic tree structure. When this was close to completion additional pearl cotton quilting was added so the backing would be tacked down.
After I get back will have to get some close up's.
