Twilight Roosting

Hi everyone,
Well I finally got the courage to cut up my felt and start doing the embroidery. It was always intended for a pair of dolls and then I just had a couple of days of misgivings!

After stitching madly for a couple of days I made these 2 up. A mother and daughter watching the birds come in to roost.

I really enjoyed making the dolls into a scene rather than in isolation. It tells more of a story and stretches me to think of a setting in which to place them.

The birds were created from leftover scraps and the trees were made from what I found in my garden. I am definitely making more trees they were great fun to do!
Am working on some more now!
