This is 'Stone the Crows' a pieced and appliqued table runner with lost and lots of free motion embroidery
I lost count after 25 bobbins were used so think about 30-35 reels + bobbins of thread were used!
Fabrics were upholstery fabric and furnishings fabrics in cotton canvas, velvet's and chenille's.
All in shades of grey's, dusty lavender, blacks and silvers.
Quite a muted colour scheme
It was great fun doing it
My second piece after Jennny Lankesters free motion class!
Thanks Jenny for the tuition!
One end - two crows fighting over a worm - LOL
Crows pecking for food
One of the birds

All in all took a week to make, and is a birthday gift to my husband as he is a bird watcher!
He looked quite pleased when he unwrapped it - I think!!
This came SECOND at the Waldringfield Village Show in the 'Other needlework' section
