Stone The Crows - table runner

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

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
