Tapestry and needle felting

Hand dyed wool fabric, wool yarns, vegetal fiber and hand dyed wool roving

This tapestry was woven specially for my granddaughter Zoe, who wanted a scene from Sweden. It was so nice to imagine a summer house the, they call it “pa landet”, it means in the house for vacation. By the lake of course, so you can fish and walk. As you can see it has the Swedish flag outside the house that is red, of course, and the birch trees are on the side.! I really enjoyed a lot making it!

my christmas tree

Designed, hooked and felted by Gun-Marie Nalsen 2020

Rug hooking, needle felting and fimo making

Hand dyed wool fabric, wool yarn, hand dyed wool roving, and polymer clay

11″ x 13″

Mounted on a canvas

This was my Christmas card this year. It represents my immediate family: children and grandchildren. I started hooking the tree with different kinds of materials. Then I felted the ground and the star. With polymer clay I made the ornaments, different colors for each family. So the red, represents Anne-Marie’s family, the blue Maria Teresa’s, the purple Mattias’s and the yellow Miguel’s, I am the orange of course! The animation of the card was made by Miguel and Enrique. I had so much fun thinking it over and making it! Merry Christmas – Feliz Navidad – God Jul

This piece was inspired by a painting of Hilma af Klint, born in Sweden (1862-1944). I liked the idea as she was Swedish, as me, so we have in common something. I loved to make this piece, it has a meaning…..dreams! We all have them!
