The beginning of a new slow cloth

The base is laminated felt and all the surface fabrics are re cycled.I have two other pieces, one of which i am vacillating about where to cut it,so that it makes a good addition to this piece,then the stitching can begin.The felting is the physical part and the stitch is the lovely slow part,for me.Taking these photographs has helped me see which parts are too dominant and where stitch is needed. The area on the left of the second picture is  a case  in point.It's a nice feeling giving new life to things from the charity shop.Next stage is to add some rusted fabric to the cloth.Finally,a busy wasp has adopted my studio doorway and has made a beautiful nest.
