Birds and bits: past and present

I used scraps of wool fibres, lace and silk from old projects and combined them to reconnect with these projects. The green parakeet feather is from London where we used to live and the macaw feathers from a neighbour where we live now in Devon; connecting the past to the present

Materials and Techniques

Mix of wool fibres, cotton lace, silk fabric and thread, peridot beads, turquoise beads, shell, parakeet feathers and macaw feathers. Wet felted, stitched and closed feather embroidery stitches
