This year for the Calendar Girls challenge we have all submitted a page from a calendar of our choice and each month one of the pages will be used as the inspiration.
The page for January came from Debbi's calendar which is by Australian Aboriginal artist Shane Pickett.
This was a wonderful picture to interpret on the embellisher and I am pleased with how it has turned out.
I used a dark brown felt as the base and layered wool and silk fibers onto it but I worked from the reverse side to achieve the subtleness that I was after.
The two rows of stitching are worked in running stitch by hand.
If you would like to see some of the other interpretations go to the Calendar Girls blog here
Here is the original picture that Debbi posted.
