Sun Trout #2

Here's another piece in progress.  It's got pins all through it, ready to stitch.  I'll be adding more rainbow color to the trout, bringing out the greens in the corner foliage, and dropping a few more highlights into the water.  I spent part of last week's vacation (in a cottage on a Maine lake) laying out this one.  We didn't see trout, but the loons sang us to sleep every night, and the kayaking was great!

Thistles - August update

The Scottish Thistles are almost done!  Here's a shot of the fabric I chose for the grass in the foreground, before and after taking an assortment of fabric markers to it and adding the Scottish Broom in behind it.



Here's the final piece with stitching almost complete!
