A Dusting of Snow Progress

Filed under: A Dusting of Snow - Gail Stafford, ANG Keystone Garden Chapter

The Dusting of Snow piece from class with Gail Stafford is coming along nicely.

I added snow to the first of the center bushes, have the Dogwood tree in place, filled in the upper right sky in both colors, stitched all 9 distant trees, and the gazebo. I was worried about disrupting the smoothness of the roof with the branches of the Dogwood. So, I wrapped the thread around the padding threads and tacked down sparingly and closer to the single brown thread. I like the rounded effect. It would not have worked out to do that for the whole tree because I couldn’t maintain the tension without twisting. Maybe if I had wrapped a thick wire. I’m very happy the Dogwood tree is done. That was challenging.

Taking a break before working more of the center bushes, the leaves on the trees, and the rest.

The dogwood tree looks great. Projects like this so much remind me of embroidery rather than needlepoint. But the results are spectacular.

Being on Congress Cloth gives it an embroidery feel but this is mostly canvaswork type of stitches.
