The finished road sign!

Here is the image of the finished sign as promised, I choose the oak leaves for the corners as I hope to plant some of my land with decidious trees and oaks are one of my favourites.  I just had a little shaving to do this morning to bring up the clarity of the colours (check out my Flickr images for a couple of close ups prior to shaving) and I also measured the piece to see how much it had shrunk.  The sign as laid out ready to felt was 1050mm X 900mm and now measures 750mm X 620mm, quite a big of shrinkage to get a sturdy piece of felt but  hopefully you will agree, worth the effort!  I now need to persuade Alan to make me a type of base to my own design, this will be what I actually hang the sign from and I think that I might go so far as to add some felt streamers to it to add to the fun effect!!  Will keep you updated.
