Sample Project 2013 - December

Here it is, the very last instalment of my 2013 sample project! I've been making little textile samples every week inspired by the photos in a John Muir Trust Wild Nature Diary. Usually a pretty quick response, just for fun and variety.
Week 49: Tail of White -Tailed Sea Eagle
(Photo of White Tailed Sea Eagle flying over Skye)
We watched three of these magnificent birds soaring together when we were in Skye ourselves in September! 
Free machined on calico with applied felt, cut away.
Week 50: Falling water/aluminium
(Photo of Falls of Foyers, previously used to generate electricity to smelt aluminium)
Free machined lines representing falling water on crumpled aluminium foil (over felt).
Week 51: Pine Pollen
(Photo of Scots pine tree in snow)
Couldn't resist doing the pollen rather than the tree, pine pollen is so weird with the little air sacs for wind distribution.
White Lutradur rubbed with blue and grey fabric crayons. Free machined with different shades of blue on top and bobbin. Burned out with soldering iron.
Week 52: Oak leaf on snow
(Photo of golden oak leaf dusted with snow)
Bondaweb leaf shape ironed onto white polyester felt. Gold and copper transfer foil ironed over, lightly. Free machined outline and veins.
Week 53: Limestone pavement in snow
(Photo of limestone pavement near Ingleborough, blanketed in snow)
Small blocks of stitch/weave using white pearl cotton. Painted over with acrylic.
