I've mostly just been outlining with back stitching at this point. Still trying to decide where I want the detail to go. I've learned through trial and err that I don't want everything outlined in black. Might work on paper, but not when you are working with texture and fabric.
I've also figured out that because I like to wing it instead of tracing out a pattern, the detail becomes my best friend in hiding the flaws. This was how my drawings went. We'll see if I can do the same on fabric.
Still lots more to do. It will reveal itself as I go.
I just ordered some new green threads online. So I'm looking forward to their arrival so I can tackle that part of the design.
See you soon. Happy stitching everyone
