The more I try to finish this the more stitches I want to make. Funny how that can happen.
At some point soon I will add some machine stitching. A way to include as many stitches as I would like but also actually finish it. So I think I am maybe postponing this machine step by prolonging the hand stitching. I don't want the machine stitching to change it too much, just compliment. I want it to be a structural background element, still a part of the design.
I added just a little bit of color - a warm orange/brown - to the underground.
For all the careful planning on the front, I really like the little path of sparkle marks showing up on the back.
