Meet on the night of the full moon..

I had it in mind to make another related pair of figures, but this time masked and hooded and conspiring at night.

"Meet on the night of the full moon, by the old town wall at the usual place".

I sketched out a rough idea first.

Then I made the collaged fabric, sorted out patterns and sewed and stuffed the figure and needle felted "the wall"..

And began the embroidery.

needlefelted the headdresses

made the moon

needle felted  and wrapped the tree

and tried out an arrangement of the pieces.

This didn't change much from the original idea. I still have the faces to paint and then to fix the bits onto a base.
