Today I started a new piece whilst dreaming of summer days paddling down the river. Here is the design of two young/ fledgling reed warblers huddling up to each other on a stem. Hidden away in the reeds that has come into flower, with the warmth of the sun making the whole piece glow.
I enjoyed making my last three-dimensional mouse so much I deiced to make this pair, who have both came to a halt as they noticed a Teasel head close enough to the ground for them to reach. Here the two field mice look up at the Teasel as one stretches to reach its head. I have often admired the structural form of the Teasel in my garden but found that it texture is hard to recreate in fabric whilst still keeping its three-dimensional form. Though after some hours of sampling I finally managed to achieve the desired effect and look forward to challenges the Dipsacus family holds!
'Deep in the woods four foxes huggle together taking shelter in a hollowed-out tree trunk. One awakens to see the first dusting of snow that has touched the last of the hawthorn berries and fallen leaves in the surrounding woodland. '
