New Trunk Show Artwork

We have received a new piece of artwork for the regional Trunk Show from Alanna Nelson. Alanna has been enjoying working with needle felting recently. Her piece, titled Turtle Grass, is made of wool and silk with a cotton back and is nuno felted and machine quilted.

Turtle Grass

"From afar, you note the water color change. Paddle closer, plunge face in the water, open your eyes. There is the beginning of a turtle grass bed. Watch the leaves sway with the waves, respond to your kicking feet. To think it harbors and camouflages so many creatures..."    Alanna Nelson
