Finished this small Tree Ring Pattern piece today. I think the markings look like feathers and concentrated the stitching in those areas. I am trying to finish a number of new pieces for an exhibit this summer at the Brushwood Gallery at the Ryerson Conservation area in Deerfield, IL. I want the concentration of work to be about trees and leaves as this old mansion sits in the middle of a beautiful wooded area. I have lots of space which is wonderful but it needs the right work to make the exhibit strong.
