I had first tried out felting at a workshop at Arrowmont...then I discovered that one of my Creative Crones' buddies has a felting machine which she is generously loaning out to any of us to use. And another Crone had a lot of wool roving which she shared with all of us. As the projects for the Felt Peace were to be at least 30% felted, I decided to do a little wall hanging....using a picture I had pulled from a magazine of a cell...sliced and magnified. I thought a single cell would be a great symbol for showing peace...we are all made of cells which are all pretty much alike and if that thought could be considered, that our differences are much less than our "alikeness" maybe peace could occur! Loving the colors and shapes in it I got my stuff together and started to felt.
