Dooleybobber #15

I believe I showed the beginning of this one awhile back.  Here is the progression of a dooleybobber.  Above is the background of needle felted bits attached to the base of wool fabric and scrim.
Here you see some progress with stitching, buttons, felt balls, beads and baubles and more lacy bits attached.

Dooleybobber #15 or Trying to Dislodge the Stone in my Heart
11" X 9" approximately

The final result.  Almost final, I do still have to attach some backing and a label.
 close up shots, starting upper left
 continuing around, clockwise.
 I hope blogger leaves my photos here this time. Next day, I see it did not leave my photos so today I have reloaded them and hope they stay this time. 
I have turned off comments for the time being.
Be well.

Oh, that's better & thanks for turning the comments back on so I could say hey back!

This is a great finished piece.I happen to have some sun silvered driftwood sticks littering my desklooking for inspiration as the way I've framed my felt piece doesn't work for me (from January) - I've stitched it to a dark blue piece of denim just over an inch all round & it looks too restricting.Maybe I'll wrap a bit of the wood..you're giving me food for thought! What do you use to label the back?
