Embroidered: Winter Trees

Finished! For now, anyway. I'll set it aside for a bit and look at it again with fresher eyes to see if there's anything I want to add. Then I'll decide how to prepare it for hanging.

Here's a closer look. Clicking will embiggen a little bit (I think).

These colors are pretty true, since I took these photos outside in indirect light. This is stitched with cotton floss on tea-dyed linen. 

One more time, here is the inspiration for this project:


(Previous posts about this project are here and here. It took a little over two weeks to stitch.)

I'm not done with exploring trees yet, I don't think. There is so much more here.

It's beautiful. Trees are endlessly fascinating as they change as you move. The trend in my neighborhood is to take down some of the old trees. Some are dying and it's ok but no one seems to be replanting. And we wonder why it seems so much hotter in the summer.
