Wild fields outside Haddon Hall

For my latest felted embroidered work I have gone back to my eternal source of inspiration, Haddon Hall.

This time I was inspired by wild fields full of daisies and buttercups.

I have tried to convey the depth of colour and texture using several layers of soft felting in numerous shades of green and brown, machine embroidery for the leaf detail and hand embroidery with silk threads for the flower heads.
