Working on a felted landscape

I have started working on a felted landscape. I used brown crossbred wool for the base, then laid on top random dyed gotland wool.

I needle felted everything with my new little machine

which I bought in Germany. I was thinking long about if I should buy it because it is pretty expensive. In the end I did and I am quite happy about that. It is good when felting bigger pieces and one can also shape well with it.

Today I put details on the base

Now I have to make my mind up, if I do some more stitching/beading. I am also tempted to slightly wet felt it to give it a more smooth finish

more than 2 month

have gone since my last post. We were away for 3 month and the posting didn't work well with the tablet, I couldn't upload any photos.
We had a good time over there, met friends and family, saw floodings and had weeks of heat wave with temperatures between 33 and 38 degrees. As usual we had a holiday trip too, this time to 'Luneburger Heath' in the north of Germany. It was a fairly long drive to get there but we had a great time with lots of nature.

We have been to swamps

saw heather and junipers

and visited 2 Hundertwasser buildings

We arrived home 2 weeks ago after a slight dramatic flight with a medical emergency for Alex. Luckily he is fine now and startet working in the garden. Though I am still listening in the night when I wake up if he is still breathing.....
