It made so much sense! I looked at the photo and said out loud: The sky and the water are the same. Poof! It made so much sense to stitch out all the green and leave the sky fabric as the water. I had contemplated many times how I would stitch out the water when in fact, the key to this piece is not stitching the water at all! Eureka.
I took a break from that, and sorted my new threads into color packs...
Yeah! All that

Monday morning, before running off to host a class for Horizon owners, I completed this flooded prairie scene by adding some hand stitched trees and birds. Can I tell you that I LOVE THIS!?
|Flooded Prairie, 2012|
I'm so proud of this one. It was pure joy for me to stitch in about a dozen different greens. It's all finished and ready to frame. It's a bit bigger than 6x8", which is twice the size of my little ones.
