The thread pile has grown again.
I have been very absorbed in my large textile and my thread pile has sort of spread into my stitching!
I have been adding more textural stitching to the foreground by hand.
I still have a lot more stitching to add, as I need to make the texture blend more into the background.
I have placed one of my brooches against the piece for you to see this is so much larger than my normal work.
I hope the scale of stitching is working in this piece, I'm constantly changing threads!
I needed to get back to some smaller stitched brooches and I have made this lace tree.
I thrive on the satisfaction of completing an art work and this is why I usually stitch on a smaller scale.
It's quite exhausting working on this larger landscape, but at the same time I feel I'm really pushing myself.
One of the positive aspects of blogging is, I have even more of an incentive to complete it!
