    My Deer in the Forest.

    While this isn't completely finished I am so pleased with it I thought I'd share. This has taken 5 days. At the moments it's 22"x36" This still needs to be mounted on a heavy backing, surface quilted and framed. Probably another 3 or 4 days worth.

    No paint! The sky is organza and the trees are all thread painted. Thanks for you comments

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    oh MaryKatherine, I found myself being very still and quiet just as I do when I view our deer in our back woods. Just lovely.
