Joann lives in East Tennessee and brings the countryside to life in her wall hangings that she creates with wool felt appliqués. She uses wool felt and wool roving combined with embroidery. All her designs are original and inspired by her home state. She has an ETSY shop called “Open Hands Creations” and would like everyone to stop by and see her stunning creations. You can also friend her on Facebook. Be sure to check out this awesome shop. The two pictured are the dramatic Smoky Mountain Trillium Quilt Appliqué and her Blue Flowers Wool Appliqué Wall Hanging.
