Tag Tuesday-Letter H



This week on Tag Tuesday we have reached the letter H. As I have been doing a bit of collage recently, this week's tag is stitched. In Tag Tuesday we are encouraged to experiment with techniques and materials. The background is felt, with a cross stitched border. It reminded me of American Folk Art, when it was finished.
I used a drawing I made a while ago, when I was trying to capture a pecking hen on paper whilst on holiday. I spent ages following the hens around, doing lightning sketches before they moved again! I photographed my stitched hen against a straw hat as that seemed appropriate.
