All my inhibitions, self doubt and questioning flew out the window today as I made the first stitches on the tree trunks. This is done free motion with King Tut variegated cotton thread #925 - a mix of greys and soft golds. And I'm lovin' the way it looks - no longer odd but as intended - a tree trunk emerging.
I'll be filling in between these first lines with either a tan or grey thread I think. Much more of the peachy background to tone down.
