Woodland Wander

Detail of owl from a needlecase. Stitched in wool felt with small black button pupils.

Recently I have been asked to create some woodland pieces for a shop in Canberra.This request  has resulted in these projects;  a revisiting and reworking of an owl design for a needlebook, and some new fox items,  a needlebook

and an even tinier fox who found shelter in a cave in this terrarium. As an indicator of size the butterfly that is hovering over the cave is less than a quarter of and inch.

These were absorbing, time consuming and at times challenging but always a learning and remembering. Next is a revisiting of fungi and who knows what else might pop up.
