Black and white and a hint of red

This was made from a napkin, laminated on card, then some pearly beady things from the dollar bin at Spotlight, which I attached freemotion with a bit of red thread.  Simple.

Here are a couple of pieces that I am working on.
This is silk paper on black felt with a little bit of freemotion embroidery.  To me, it looks like snowgum bark, but still needs a lot of thinking and stitching.
This one is also silk paper, overlayed this time with black tulle and with some gold leaf in it.  It doesn't actually look like anything, except perhaps mossy bark and I have only emphasised the freen bits a tiny bit.  More cogitating.needed.

This one is my mantra, I think.
