I've slowed up a bit on this, playing a waiting game. I spend a lot of time looking at it, thinking about the next step. I want the background to be simple, with not much detail so I can add some bigger trees and a sun. But I am finding it hard to tone it down to not make it too complicated. Trouble is I get carried away with stitching, I want to add more, but keep telling myself that less is more.
The squiggly line is soft embroidery cotton couched on with thin cotton of a matching colour. The chain stitch is six strands of white embroidery cotton.
The red section is still to fill, waiting for ideas. Something will come to me. When that's done I will make the sun.
