Boreal Forest - In Progress


So, I have the background trees on the far side of the pond stitched and you can see some of the details in the pictures that follow.

I hope that you can see the shadows of the far trees left unstitches to provide some depth!








I will add grasses to the foreground and some soft detail in the sky.


Hoping that you have a good rest of the week and a great weekend ahead!

This piece is wonderful. I can see many vistas from the landscape around us here in Cape Breton in it.

You have really been successful in creating the illusion of depth in this piece. It is not the easiest thing to accomplish with fiber art. Good job.

I love the colours, shapes and shadows in this. You feel you can just walk into the water.

Super duper! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product. What is the size of this piece?
