The story of this creation is written below the pictures :) 

        While visiting Romania I stuffed a suitcase full of this colorful roving wool and on the plane ride home sketched the design while considering I bought an equal amount of each color and wanted to use as many as possible.  The technique I used to intertwine the wool into the felt fabric behind it is called 'needle fleeting.' I added floor mats underneath the project space to absorb the puncturing needles while I worked mostly on the floor.  Inside the mountains contain recycled stuffing to hold its shape as I stitched around a curved metal bar covered in vinyl underneath the top rainbow stripe to allow hanging.
