PLS week 5

here is my week 5 effort - amazing piece of sequinned bling from trimmings and remnants in coburg, couched with gold thread using herringbone stitch onto hand dyed wool felt. the explosion underneath is mainly standard dmc embroidery floss, scarlet rayon and crimson silk. the felt in real life is a more vibrant greeny blue rather than the straight blue it is here.

and this amazing alien head is a seed from a cypress tree in the fitzroy gardens. don't know what i'm going to do with it but doesn't it look bizarre?
