He looks plain now! So glad I didn't just put this piece in a frame or add a facing or small border. Plus, this is a lot more fun!
The top embroidery may look crooked but I'm adding small branches off each curve on the top and bottom borders.
The side will just have a single embroidery branch.
One of my role model/mentors, Kay S. (Quilts+Color) suggested I add some beads to pull in the beaded bird! I didn't even think about adding beads but what a great suggestion!!! I have some ideas on where I'll be adding them! Thanks, Kay!!!
We are expected to have a severe ice/snow storm starting at 4 a.m. on Saturday...which is to last until Sunday along with winds, so they are predicting power outages! Guess I forgot what a Michigan winter is like. Keeping our fingers crossed it's not as bad as they are predicting. But if they are, I have my coffee, wine and lots of hand work to keep me busy!
