My final offering on the Travelling book round was for Janet whose theme was the seasons. I already had a piece of felt from ages ago onto which I’d lightly felted the outline of a skeleton tree, but it wasn’t very well felted so I decided to turn it into an Autumn tree with a bit of needlefelting.
The branches and trunk were needlefelted into place…
…and then I used all 6 strands of an overdyed thread to embroider fly stitch leaves onto the branches.
I love the autumnal variegations in the thread.
We’ve finished this year’s planned rotations but anybody who wanted to continue on an ad hoc basis has left their books in the system and we’re picking up any that we haven’t worked in before. Architecture or nature are my themes this time.
