Home again!

I'm recovering at home from heart surgery so I can't do much for a while, but I did manage to finish this little witch. A slightly altered pattern.

She is made from a piece of discharge dyed black velvet. The discharge paste was dabbed on through pieces of a paper doily. It seemed a shame to cover it with embroidery. I like the patterns as they are.

Her face is hand coloured and painted and lightly needle sculpted.

Her hands are wool wrapped plastic covered "computer" wire.
It was near enough impossible to get a decent photo of those hands, so here's a close up.

Hope to be "fully functioning" in two or three weeks!

I hope that you are taking it easy and getting back to your old self. Take care:)

I really like the design on the velvet. What a great idea. I have a ton of vintage black velvet from my mum's stash.
