On my mind for quite a while, has been a nuno-felted Butterfly Coat.  I have made quick sketches at work, and while on vacation, but did not start the project until the wall art (in the background of the photo) was completed.  I started with some fine silk chiffon in white and black.  I spent a morning dying the white to orange.  Then I began the many segments needed to produced the effect I had in mind.  here is a quick peek at the work so far....

I am please with the first pieces.  I need 7 individual pieces of nuno-felt, then a few hours to sew it into the floor length coat.  It should be light and airy and kind of float around the body as I walk.
