I used 2 shades of embroidery threads for the oat tops and the whole thing just transformed before my eyes. I cannot begin to tell you how happy this piece makes me! I am also nearing the end of this next piece. I have to put in some blue french knots near the bottom of the fence post and it will be complete.
|work in progress... flowers to be added|
By the way, I did add birds to my Summer piece. I am glad I did. They give some perspective. They also add some silence to the piece I think. I love watching groups of birds.

The count down begins. I think I'm making good progress. I have to hang the Gardenscapes show in 10 days. At this point I have mounting, matting, framing, binding, hanging sleeves, and title/sale cards to make. Little by little, I'm getting it done.
Take care everyone
