Embroidered pictures; Lone Tree

It doesn't feel like I have had much time to stitch lately, but when I looked back it turns out I have made a bit of progress on Lone Tree.

The sand dunes are growing and I am having a great time playing with stitches and textures.

Most are really simple stitches; chain stitch, running stitch, stem stitch and couching.

This dune was really rewarding to stitch; two strands of Danish flower thread (a soft cotton similar to floche but matte) couched down in a pattern with a single strand of silk. 
I have decided that couching as a stitch is very under rated...

Even a bit of sky has begun to appear. There is a long way to go, but it is taking shape...

Happy Stitching,
