Stitched felt paintings

I have been playing around with more stitching on my felts and decided to go for it and make the stitch a central focus on a felt. This is what I did.
I made a wet felted landscape with the silhouette of a rooster in the foreground. I made the silhouette in a vaguly chickeny sort colour because I guessed some of it would show through the stitching.
I began to add free machine stitching to the tail area. I started with blues and greens.
I kept adding suitable colours and building up the stitches to blend in different areas. This takes a LOT of time and thread - be warned.
When the rooster was finally complete I added a little stitching to the rest of the piece to define areas and add detail.
