A Gift from nature

The Autumn garden clean up continues. On the lower lawn a large piece of a silver birch came down in the last storm. I got to clean most of it up but some bits I couldnt help saving. The inner wood was completely rotten but the bark and lichen on the outside was intact. I thought of birch bark canoes and wondered how I could incorporate some of this in my stitching or eco dying. Very exciting
