Little Sparrow, detail

Hand embroidery on needle-felted wool. Studio hours: 9pm -12am. Not at my best this late in the day, but making it work somehow. Cultivating my inner Night-Owl.

You can see some cheese-cloth/scrim that is loosely felted into the wool. Once the embroidery is complete I'll touch up the felting to ensure that some of the loose ends are worked into the wool. The base is needle-felted by machine, but I'll needle felt by hand for the finishing touches.
