needlefelt quiltie

A needlefelt quiltie for a swap in the Unlimited Textiles group.
The theme is "winter wonderland". I have made it on my embellisher machine from colored sheepfleece and a few angelica fibers for shiny sparkles in the snow.
The quiltie should be 5", 12,5 cm square but it seems I have great difficulties to work so small.
This piece was far too large and I have cut away as much as possible to keep it nice.
Now the size is 13 x15 cm. I hope the receiver likes it as it is, if not, I presume she has a scissor :-)

Ati, although I am not the receiver, I would leave it as it is. It is wonderful! You did a great job here.

This is lovely Ati! I love how you combine a little bit of embroidery with the felting! The angelina fibers added to the snow really make it sparkle!

I know that kind of trouble while embellishing! The smaller the more difficult it is! But this one is very lovely, great idea to use the angelina for the sparkling snow!

Oh, Ati, she won't be able to bear cutting into it! It's just wonderful and perfect as it is. Some things should not be limited by size.
