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?
