Something Different ~

Sometimes I wake up reeeeeally early in the morning ~
like 3:00 AM early.
this morning was no different except that I couldn't get this out of my head.
a dimensional wool/punch/applique/embroidery piece that I want to make for Ghoultide ~

it's a "Wapplimpunchbroidery"...yeah, that's it.
 the only thing I haven't done yet is to add rug hooking,

see that green strip of wool over there?

yeah, that one.
 I wanted to replicate a hooked look, but can't hook through the cloth, so I simply shirred the wool strip and tacked it into place...
~ looks like a hooked strip to me!

shirred wool strip will become a flower stem ~

not sure how I will finish this piece ~
...pillow? framed? wall hanging??

embellished embroidery stitches like colonial knots, satin stitch, straight stitch and blanket stitch
using Kreinik metallic braided threads ~
vintage french wired ribbon is stitched to her hat and accented with
little metallic colonial knots ~
the next thing I'll do is work on the leaves & the flowers coming from her little cauldron ~
perhaps I'll add some vines & berries,...maybe an owl, crow or two...
want to pack alot of detail into this piece :)
...then of course, I'll stain it with my walnut spice dye ~
....that will add so much to it too...

I'll share the finish with you soon!
p.s. many thanks for your emails regarding the Black Jack Rug with knotted fringe edge ~
I can't accept custom orders at the moment due to upcoming shows ~ thanks for understanding!
Blessings from Notforgotten Farm...
