Thread painting

I've been stitching away on this piece for the last couple of days, adding shades and high lites to the rocks. I'm still not sure about it but at some point I have to call it done.


When I put it up on the wall or here on the screen, I see little areas that I want to improve. The photo was taken with my I Pad as the camera battery just quit.

Right now it is heavily stitched and backed with a very stiff interfacing. I think I'll add Timtex to the back and anchor it with some stitching, finally binding it.

Despite being under six feet of snow, spring is in the air and on my mind. I've got ideas that want expressing!

Breathtaking!

And I liked your tree trimming idea using the snow to get up there, that is brilliant.

Love your bird photos, do you take them outside or through a window? Fun visiting you!
