    Thank you. That's a good suggestion. I've used Angelina fibers for snow before, and it was very effective. I'll look into what I might use for the grass and bushes. Good idea!

    Great job. Love the wood on your barn. You are getting good! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Really, everything you have put in so far is wonderful... your trees, sky, the house... can't wait to see the finish project. :-D

    I really like it. One thing I'd suggest is to accentuate the door on the barn because unlike the photo, you won't have the misalignment that delineates the tops of the doors and you don't want everything to look 3D and then have the wide flat of the side of the barn :). I'm sure it's probably already planned with your thread painting, but just in case I thought I'd throw in my two cents! Looks great so far!

    Yes, I actually didn't notice the door at first. I think i'm going to put it in with fabric. The project is "marinating" at the moment as I consider the next step.
