Now this is rehash, infact it may even be posted earlier on the blog somewhere.
I had made it originally with a green dble knit, crocheted foliage then added a nobbly yarn as an additional edging.
But it always looked top heavy to me and the tree foliage was too dense.
So I finally sat and unpicked all the crocheted greenery, leaving just the bare branches and then added the lightweight leafery and now I'm happy with it at last.
It hung on my wall, and each time I looked at it, I knew it was 'wrong' but when I stumbled on the voile fabric, for 50p a 60" wide meter at my local Scrapstore............I'd found what it needed.
It has hand made felt for the foreground and hand felted rolls to the right side, with a stump work hodgeheg centrally.
Ive made quite afew of these circular hangywotnots recently and find them pleasing to make, each a little different - or I'd get bored making them - this one was half a an embroidery hoop.
Okay I'm off to feed the dogs and remaining 3 cats, all of which are sat round me willing me to move!
