Rug hooking and needle felting

Hand dyed wool roving, hand dyed wool fabric , yarns and watercolors.

I saw a picture in a Swedish magazine of a neighborhood with yellow houses with shadows and the normal red house in the front, so I tried to make them up. I am quite happy with the result, it was fun to figure it out! Love the straight lines of the houses and the roofs, and I painted with watercolors the sky, just to make it more interesting!

corazon sembrado – planted heart

Rug hooking and needle felting

Hand dyed wool roving , hand dyed wool fabric, sari silk yarn and wool yarn on linen

Mounted on canvas fabric on a wood stretcher

14″ x 20″

This was a commission for a friend. She wanted a heart with flowers, so I made contact with my daughter Anne-Marie and she made this design perfect for what she wanted. It was so much fun to build up the heart with different materials. The leaves and the flowers were felted. The background has some insinuated butterflies. My son Miguel made the stretcher and covered with canvas, it came out good. A lot of work, but worthwhile! It was really three pairs of hands in it!

It was a long time since I made wove in a hoop. It is fun, and sometimes unpredictable, depending on the materials you use. The colors were there in my bag after a commission I made recently. So there it is!

Love to hook in circles, it is an interesting form. I imagined here a city, a big one, with all the lights on. No cars, no people on the streets. The pandemia is on!

Designed and woven by Gun-Marie Nalsen 2020

Tapestry and needle felting

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

12″ x 18″

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!
