Detail :: the brown thread is the silk and steel yarn

I enjoyed this exercise very very much. Until now, it was my favourite one using colour. I liked the effect of the silk and steel yarn and the mixture of green wool and green cotton thread, together they give a beautiful texture to the tree. I also like the effect of two different thread types and colours on the flowers. But the best of all was "weaving" my own piece of 100% cotton fabric with sewing cotton thread with the sewing, the soluble fabric is magical. This is just a small rectangle of 6 cm x 9 cm. 

Used materials: wool yarn, cotton yarn for crochet, silk and steel yarn, sewing machine cotton thread, soluble fabric.
