Christmas March part 5
For the background I used a Wave Variation from Brenda Hart, starting with the dark sky area. For the lower area I chose a Diagonal Hungarian stitch, again from SuZy's Lite Stitches. I loved the effect when I started on the left side of the canvas, but as I spent literally hours using my Dazor to adapt the stitch to the other lighter areas I came to the realization that it was the right stitch in the wrong place. I ended up using the Wave Variation throughout the background.
This project is almost finished...soon I can move on to another wonderful canvas - the Easter March!
