I included a close up of the piece to better see the movement of colours.
What better illustration of life, light, fire than our own sun! Inspired by recent pictures of the sun from space.

I have just started to experiment with wool. I bought a beautiful piece of hand dyed wool and I decided to create a wall hanging with a small piece of it. I used some turquoise and magenta wool roving to create a butterfly with a swirling flying trail to represent flight in the air. I beaded and added yarn scraps as a border and beads to the butterfly. I then used yarn to attach it to a drift wood branch to hang it.

Made with natural colored Icelandic wool.

I completely agree with the above comment, the internet is with a doubt growing into the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to sites like this that ideas are spreading so quickly.
