This little wall quilt has been patiently waiting for my attention.....which it received over the last couple of evenings.
All the beading has now been completed. I had intended to fill in the blank areas of the pine cones with either beads or embroidery threads, but after showing the piece to my fiber buddies.....all were in agreement - Leave it alone. Your thoughts??
In the meantime, I added a bit of texture to the background by embroidering a zillion French Knots. At first I worked with 4 strands of thread, but after about a dozen complete, I realized they were overpowering the design. So I took them out and started again using two strands of embroidery floss, in different shades of green.
The next step will be to add a backing and try to come up with some sort of edging treatment. I shuffled beads around for about an hour this morning and finally put it aside. I will passively think about it today as I work through my other tasks.
