Remember? I sketched it out. (I never sketch things out.)
Then I laid out the fabrics for snow, grass, and sky. That was a hand-painted piece.
I had all the thread painting pretty much done on the background... and that's where I left it. Just yesterday I added the tipi and the rosebushes! I was really afraid of this step for some reason. Ha ha - important aspects considering that the piece is called "Tipi and Rosehips" you know. lol
Whew! It worked. I hand stitched the poles and some of the grasses in the bush. Another couple hours to finish and tidy it up and it will be done. : ))) It's a larger version of it's sister here below. The original photos were taken on the same day last November.
