That one has a lot more french knots in it, and I think I did a great job making them larger in the foreground and teenee in the distance. They are really tiny. I love stitching these so much. I would love to do a flax field this summer. mmmmm... ; )
Here is a close up of the sky in this piece.

I am so happy with how this one turned out. It's framed, and off to to the new owner this week. I kept it a little longer so that I could show Darlene on Wednesday's interview for the newspaper.
I also reworked The Oat Field into a teeny 3x3" piece. It's really pretty, and still so full of detail. It's a gift that have dropped off for someone very special. It was a little secret I had been keeping. I hope it makes her day every time she looks at it. She sure made mine.
If I tip it to reflect the light this way, then the lighter oat heads shine. Excuse the glare from the glass. ;( It's gone now and I don't have the greatest photo of it to show you.
Now to the other commissions. Mandy! Jesica! And K - here we go! : ) I worked on Mandy's tree and am so pleased with the bark. The particular color of the tree now really works great with all the rainbow colors in the whole wallhanging. And I love the roughness of the bark. I was about to throw in the towel on this one when suddenly it came alive! (Isn't that how it always works?) So, aside from some stray threads to be clipped, the bark of the tree is done.
It's perfect. The tree just took over. : )
All the best
