This is a closer view of the foreground with the log pinned in place. I took these wip photos with the fabric propped in my lap (hence the iffy lighting). I cropped my feet out. Fabrics include a loosely woven cotton, dyed cheesecloth, tulle, netting, needlepoint canvas, evenweave linen, hand-dyed cotton, and mesh vegetable bag. The rocks are cut carefully from mottled handyed cotton so they look shaped and shadowed. The shadows are violet and black tulle. The threads are mostly perle cottons and some crochet cotton, but there were some other random stash fibers, too.
Here's the final embroidery, as sent for review to Judith Baker Montano. I framed it over stretcher bars and backed it with some needlepoint canvas.
This angle shot shows how the embroidery wraps around the sides of the stretcher bars. I sent it off for review by the September 1 deadline.
It's back with her review already, so more to come...
