"Forest Floor" - in progress


Forest Floor, originally uploaded by minstrel spinner.

Here is one of my newest felt pieces, titled "Forest Floor". I dyed the merino roving in numerous Fall colors, using WashFast Acid Dyes. Then I laminated some silk organza that I dyed with MX dyes, in leaf shapes. I love the mark that handstitiching gives and there is nothing better to stitch on but felt! I've added the stems on each leaf, with plans to stitch skeletion like leaf shapes in the background, for more depth and to complete the composition.
