Desert Blue

It's over 4 months since I lasted posted about this piece. I had no idea it would take so long for me to get to this stage, which is probably just as well but I'm pleased with the way my idea has developed. When I start a piece of work I usually like to have a view of how the finished piece should look albeit this view can change as the work progresses.  With this piece, try as I might, I couldn't get a clear view of how I wanted the finished piece to look, which may partly explain why it has taken so long. So there was nothing for it but to take it one section at a time.
There is dense stitching in places which was very hard on my fingers but I'm pleased that I persevered. I'm sure I could go on and on with the stitching but I'm going to stop here.

It's not quite over yet though, I still need to finish the work and get it ready for hanging but starting a new piece seems more appealing at the moment. This is definitely the first in a series. I have a number of other ideas to persue, in fact one experiment is 'brewing' at the moment, and I can't wait to see how it develops. More of that at another time.
