Autumn bark

Two fabric postcards, based on my own pictures of bark.
a detail...
Each time, I started with hand embroidery, and added machine stitching afterwards.

These are so lovely Francoise. The colors are very interesting and I'm finding them fascinating and with just the right amount of texture.

I love your successful attempt at "bark." I, too have been playing with bark - take a look at my leaf challenge with the squirrel. I had a grand time making this bark. (but I like yours more!!)
