I am in love with fiber artist Salley Mavor's creations!! I have two of her books and I drool over the amazing needlework and artistry that goes into every detail. I chose her creation called Rabbitat seen here http://weefolkstudio.com/2014/02/01/...eaway-winners/ for inspiration. I wanted to do a mixed media piece. I began by water coloring the bunnies and chick. After that I went wild with felt and embroidery. I was so inspired by Salley's stitching that I couldn't stop! I doodled in some flowers and decided to make it look like it was really a tiny forest home by adding the moss on the side of the canvas. I hope you like it!

Oh WOW Polly!!! This is so neat and so unique to me. I think your work is fabulous and you picked a wonderful inspiration site. I love the raised areas and the felt. It surely looks like something I would want to touch. I love the outer layer of grass framed around your piece. Thanks for sharing this with us.
