Textile exam 2 - preparation

On Monday I will be doing my next textile exam and I've just been doing some pre-exam embellishing. I made this piece of felt with natural coloured merino fleece with a few subtle hints of colour in there too. I have then embroidered a few flowers, couched a few threads and finished with a few beads.

This will hopefully, if all goes to plan on Monday, form part of a wrist piece. I quite like it how it is so I hope I don't spoil it when it starts to evolve into something else!

The other picture I'm posting is a basin which took my eye in Lakeland the other day, I thought some of the colours and flowers were similar to the embroidery I was working on so I had to buy it to bring it home to compare.
