There's still a lot to be done on this, but I'm slowly finding my way along, taking each section at a time and seeing where it leads me next.
As I haven't posted about this for a while, here are a couple of close ups
and the whole piece in natural light
I love the delicate turquoise and the way it interacts with the eco colour. I'm aware that those leaf prints may well fade with time, so am accenting them with stitch. I think there may be some floating seeds scattered about at some stage, it has a feeling of Autumn about it. Hardly surprising considering when I started.
I haven't decided on a border yet, I'm waiting to see where I get to with the stitching first, feeling for what the cloth is telling me as I stitch it. Truly a slow stitch project.
