    You were all so kind to offer your suggestions on my unhappy experiment with an art quilt.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-123267-1.htm

    In the end I decided to save that one to experiment with different art media. I decided to start again on an easier one. Here's what I have so far. Any suggestions are welcome.

    I still need to add the "chimneys" on each building, and I want to add a facing to the roofs of both buildings. Then I need to add shadows and a lot of thread painting. I'm going to do vertical lines on the barn on the left, and horizontal lines on the red part of the building on the right. And I'm going to add a stump where the leafless tree is. I'm going to add a lot of green thread in the grass, and also some gold thread to simulate the brambles and berry vines in the grass. Still a long way to go, but I'm happier with this one than the previous one
