This needle felted picture on real Harris Tweed is called

"Thistle"

Thistle is a bit of a wild one. She loves to play and dance among the wildflowers. At night she parties with the nocturnal animals. And she never wears matching socks, because who has time for that?

This is a needle felted picture depicting a Thistle Fairy dancing among the Scottish thistles, surrounded by butterflies who are twirling with her.
She wears a purple long sleeved dress with green polka dots, a poofy colourful greenish hem along the skirt and sleeves, tights with one yellow leg and one green and teal leg and she has a moss green flower crown in her light minty blue hair.
She has tall thistle leaf shaped wings with a green art yarn core and grass green and moss green fiber worked over that.
She is dancing among thistle flowers, which have bulbous flower pods, made of silk yarns and merino wool. There are colours of grass green, sea green, forest green, moss green, purple, magenta and pink.
The scene was needle felted onto a sky blue felt backing and then sewn onto a beautiful genuine green, blue and purple patterned Harris Tweed background.
Then the felt picture was lined with a hand dyed handspun purple merino yarn needle felted trim and pink multicolour silk flowers at the corners.
The picture has been needle felted with merino wool and hand dyed and handspun silk art yarns.

The whole painting, picture and Harris Tweed background is around 17.5 cm high and 12.5 cm wide, the felt picture is 13 cm high and 8 cm wide and the whole is set in a light wooden frame, which is about 19.5 cm high and 14.5 cm wide. The frame can both be hung on the wall and set upon a dresser.
