The canvas has taken shape. I used a hand tool that holds eight barbed needles to tack the wool fibers to each other. This canvas, the largest I’ve ever made, used more than a pound of wool fiber!
I’ve also added another layer using a mix of six different shades of green wool. This forms the background of the garden design. I tacked it in place allowing a border of the plain gray wool to show all around. In the finished piece it will have the visual effect of a mat.
