Moss embroidery - Penny Nickels. I love the concept behind this piece. It reminds me of a magnifying glass, whereby the artist has brought out an area of the trees texture. Embroidery is a key interest in mine. I love the detail added into the moss and the varying shades of green which adds to the realism of the piece.
