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!
It will be worth it in the end. It looks very dramatic.
It's an amazing piece! It was a good idea to show it alongside the brooch so we can appreciate the scale and just how much time and love you are lavishing on it
Have a lovely weekend M
I love the look of your larger art work but I do know what you mean about liking to get things finished - thus doing smaller items. I am interested to know if you do all this on the machine and if so, how do you accommodate the thicker thread - do you slacken the tension?
Also I wonder if you like the work of Alice Kettle - I went to an exhibition of her work - most impressive.
It's looking great! Just keep the finished piece in mind, and you'll get there.
JUST AMAZING !!! The dynamic use of colour and sense of movement is beautiful.
it looks a real challenge! you'll get there:)
Kaylacoo you have set yourself a great challenge and it looks as if it is driving you forward to complete it! Love the colour and scale...alot of work and passion.
Its looking fantastic! Have a lovely weekend xx
We are all waiting and watching so you can't let us down! I am supremely confident it will be perfectly finished.It looks fabulous so far.

Keep going Michala, I think it's your best one yet! x
Hope that amazing piece is going well, maybe finished after a rainy weekend... Carol
Wonderful! You are so good at that stitching and colours !!!
Goodness this is such a fabulous undertaking - the difference in scale is big isn't it but it's so beautiful. It will be SO worth it - Do show us as soon as it's done wont you?

This looks like pastels... to think it is actually stitch work just blows me away. Amazing skill and talent you have.
