Haha, it usually is! There's nothing like spending 12+ hours in the studio. I started with wool roving, felted it on my felting machine, then added stitchery.
With this one, I spun some roving between my fingers as if to make yarn, sewed it onto a circle of felt, then felted it on the machine. The "yarn" blends to make a background for running stitches in perl cotton. It's finished with beads.
More stitch-play -- what a fun day!
