recycled wool and embroidery

 This particular piece is done and only have in process pictures. The pictures at least give a sense of where this was going. will have to take a finished picture and add it after I get home.
 After making the scenes for the small tri-fold bags i applied the same ideas to a larger piece. Beige / Tan wool background with a shiny polyester fabric for the main background. To this multiple layers of silk and polyester scraps were added to form the hills. The yarn is a heavy wool couched down to form a tree figure.
a gold colored thread, it was like a metallic was used for the running stitches in the blue part. regular pearl cotton was used to quilt the wool background.
