I literally just looked up from the embellisher and out the window to get inspiration for the next step in this experiment. Yesterday's basic hillsides were meant to be covered by a couple of trees in the foreground...
I started with this sort of flimsy knitable "ribbon". I think it is polyester...it felted on like a breeze.
On the left of the picture you can see the variegated woolen yarn I used for the smaller branches.
And now I am adding some apple blossoms out of 4mm ribbon from Riversilks. There will no doubt be some out of season flowers added in the foreground before this is all over!
