TAST 2012 #10 Running Stitch

It took me awhile to start this.  My idea was to do a sky background and then stitch a tree on top of it.  I liked the result before I stitched the tree--so I still have to decide if I am going to do the tree at all.

I first did running stitch with different colors and widths of silk ribbon.

Then I used my embellishing machine to needle felt the ribbon into the white felt background.  I really like the way this looks.  What do you think?
