IPM - Day 13

You'll have to look really closely to find what I spent at least four hours doing today.
All the background from the olive green up is stitched. That's almost half.
And I decided to finish all five
major trees. Each now has at least 5 passes with different thread and a light crayon treatment to heighten shadow areas.
Now the fun begins bringing this alive.
So it's decision time again.
I was going to machine stitch the series of shrubs at the centre with foliage style stitching. Now I'm considering doing them off the piece, on netting.
There are also about ten small trees to be placed/stitched but I'm undecided whether the foliage should be snippets, stitches or netted foliage.
