felt competition

I entered a craft competition as part of the Ulster Folk Museum Craft and Skills Day. The category I entered was a wet felt panel, which had to depict a rural scene. Unfortunately there weren't too many entries in any of the categories, I don't think the museum advertised it very well.
Anyway it was nice to do a bit of wet felting again and my panel is supposed to be a scene showing the Mourne Mountains complete with yellow gorse bush. Some photos of it....


I won second place - 

Congratulations to the winner (sorry no photo) - there were only two entries in my category, so I guess I really came last! Not to worry it was a nice afternoon at the Folk Museum which incidentally had free entrance today.
Till next time, Ali


  1. That's fabulous, I love it, and no you didn't come last, you came second, the award says so. It's sad that these type of events aren't very well supported these days.

  2. Well done Ali, you would have done well no matter how many entries there were, it's a lovely scene.
    It certainly wasn't well advertised nor was the fact that there was free admission today, I never heard about either!

  3. What a beautiful wet felted slice of rural landscape Ali - love the colours, the yellow gorse adds a splash of vibrancy, fabulous patchwork criss crossing of fields, and whispy clouds! Terrific textures too - would love to stay in the wee white cottage neath the cloud topped mountains!
    It would've been a fabulous first from me!!

  4. no. You came second and a worthy winner I am sure. Your picture is great.
    Sometimes there are great things here but we never get to hear about them.

  5. Congratulations Ali. A lovely rural scene. Love the detail!
