I didn't want to clog up the board with a whole heap of projects so am posting these three together. They made up my swap package for spidermom in the anything goes needlework swap.
The stumpwork owl;

and in profile:

The branch is a raised stem band stitch, the leaves are raised leaf stitch (fancy that) and the owl is a padded slip

The felt fox:

based on an ornament in the book falalala felt

And lastly some crewelwork woodland critters:

I just noticed how wonky the hill is- whoops! I was going for a retro feel with the colours and the use of wool


Like my stuff? Why don't you come visit sometime?
