Back to earth

Earth colours have been used in this piece of felt. It was inspired by some gorgeous wool which was shared at the felt group , but when I'd made it I couldn't help being reminded of an awful swirly 80s carpet in a friend's house a long time ago.
However, once the stitches were added (and I must remark how much I enjoyed this part) I think the carpet memory faded.
I hope it gives a foresty feeling. Leafy foresty earthy....

Nothing 80-ish about this! It looks very much like what I'm seeing outside my window right now.

Leafy, foresty, earthy is wonderful and I love the stitching. Although a burst of zingy colour can be gorgeous I love these more gentle ones.
