I finally finished up some needle-felting I started a couple months ago. I made a backing/frame out of old cedar remnants for this piece, which was wet-felted, machine-stitched, and needle-felted (in that order). The hills are felted to look a bit like the badlands near Dubois. One of my friends gave me a rusted ol' horseshoe, and I am also using a railroad spike I found years ago. Another friend picked up some rusted barbed wire off her dad's ranch, and I used that to frame the weathered cedar.
Cutting and bending the barbed wire was tough!! It was really hard on my hands, so I don't know if I'll do that again. However, the creative aspect was fun.
