This has been fun.
I'm not finished with the grassy section yet but I've made good progress. I feel like I'm getting into the groove of combining landscape embroidery with crazy quilt stitching and it is melding the way I hoped it could.
I'll show details and then the overall view....
As usual, the larger stitches are in the foreground of the "picture plane"....
...and the finer stitching is "farther away", visually. Hopefully this helps to create the illusion of a depth of field.
This section is not quite done yet, but you get the idea.
I think it needs many more bullion seedheads.
I've enjoyed dipping into my stash of nature-colored threads, yarns, and ribbon so much.
There will be lots of tweaking of course but things are really flowing now for the first time since this project began....and it has me looking forward with much more confidence to the waves section.
Now I'm signing off until Sunday...
...and want to wish ALL of you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We are so blessed...!
