Oldies but goodies
The 2 crow pieces were sketched with pencil onto soluble stabilizer and stitched from the back.
The ginkgo was done free motion with no pattern. I just winged it.
This is a bobbin sketch done from the back using a sketch on tissue paper which I picked off. I later did the crows with the soluble stabilizer - much easier.
