'Sunset ~ Parry Sound Killbear'

Making some progress on my newest work. I drew up another quick sketch just to show how my zig-zag stitch will look as the treatment for the pine boughs. I used my aquarelles and my (black with 1/2 a sugar) coffee for colour ;)

Also started stitching the 'big' tree which will (when done and washed of the water-soluble)  be placed over the whole collage and stitched down - see previous post.

I am getting anxious for the great assemblage.

If you are new to stitching on a water-soluble, I highly recommend 'Wet N Gone'. It is great to work with ... very strong and tightens in the hoop without worry of tearing, and takes loads of stitching without holes opening up before you've had a chance to take the hoop away.

*Watch for tomorrow's post (January 25) - Grow Your Blog Party - when almost 400 bloggers from around the world will be visiting each other, all day. This will be a great opportunity to meet and greet bloggers of many disciplines of fibre art ! This affair is engineered by Vicki Boster at '2 Bags Full'.
