Thought I would post a picture of my challenge piece for TBAI. The theme is Children's Classic Novels. I picked Treasure Island as my subject. I features an 11 inch Long John Silver. He is made out of tan, blue, brown & black mohair. Has a red silk scarf and sash, and is leaning on a wooden crutch. He is wearing a black felt hat and has a multi-color needle felted parrot on his shoulder. He is accompanied by a 6 inch Jim Hawkins who is mad out of tan, red & black mohair. Jim is carrying a needle felted Skull & Cross Bones flag. They are overlooking a treasure chest that opens to reveal a treasure of gold coins. Everything is standing on a base that is scattered with sand, shells and even a needle felted skull.
