Landscape

After our busy day yesterday I have been taking things easier today with a little hand sewing and a visit to an old friend. When I got back from seeing my friend, look what was waiting for me........



I received this beautiful needle felted landscape (6"x6") from Annette as part of a three person swap at Machine Embroidery_Machine Felting_FME/UK . Isn't it beautiful? I am really excited because I got one with the sheep on! It is based on the countryside close to where Annette lives in the North of England.



This is a detail of the delightful trees which have been machine embroidered and the sheep and heather on the hillside which are hand stitching.


Annette has made a lovely job of finishing off the landscape with a fabric backing and detailed label.

This lovely little landscape is too good to hide away so I will find a way of displaying it. I have to make myself a landscape similar to the one I have sent Annette so I may display all the landscapes from this swap together, maybe as a wall hanging. You have already seen the landscape I have sent Annette here. I have almost finished the one I will be sending to the third person in this swap, so then there's just mine to do.
