Genteel craft

My wife likes to be creative, she draws, paints in water colours and uses various fibres to make felt wall hangings. One day she was making a wall hanging from wool and other natural fibres. There were a few stages of preparation of these raw materials getting the various colours to blend. One of these involved a multi-pointed needle that was used to prod the work-piece in order to get the fibres to mesh and bind together. I decided to take a few shots and decided I wanted to capture something of the rapid movement of this stage and came up with this almost abstract image that describes a part of this otherwise genteel craft.
