Stick Tree in wool

Prepping for the Mighty Tieton Craft and Antiques Bazaar December 6 and 7.  I'm taking some felt applique pillows.  This is a new technique using strips of hand dyed wool - great for those little scraps I couldn't quite toss out.  Now they're featured in this cozy pillow.

It starts with a few strips pinned in place, and woven together for form a tree.  Using a variety of threads, each strip is hand appliqued down - over and under the other strips.  Pins keep the strips straight while stitching.

And then a red bird topped it off.
