Winter crow wreath

When my sewing group voted for the hare winter wreath, there was a good amount of people who would rather have had a darker crow one. So I’m making a start.

I want it to have a gothic feel, so I am going for a dark purple background, although I am going to check it with a dark grey now we are in natural light again. (The difficulties of doing a lot of sewing in the evening.) So I might swop yet.

It  does look nice on the purple and really there won’t be very much of it on show after all. I shall have a think. I like the lifted wings on this crow, and I also lifted the tail feathers and it gives him a lot of energy. I decided on ivy rather than hawes but added in a few ivy berries to lift the purple.
