Woods and Water

I keep redoing the tree stitch but it never comes out quite right, i finished this one but now wish I hadn’t cos it looked much better in that hoop^^^ and only half completed. 

^^^Some sea as inspired by Drowning of the Bottom Hundred, I like the water, not so sure about the wall. Despite how complicated this looks it ONLY took a day!

 Bala Lake is another story Ive been looking at. Its about an evil ruler whose valley gets flooded and his castle ends up  at the bottom of the lake. The only good person in the valley is warned by a bird who leads him to safety.

Ive noticed most of the stories seem to be about either floods/storms or farmers/shepherds. Usually they involve a person being rescued or kidnapped by some mythical being. Im picking out the more visually interesting parts to work on.

    They all look lovely, I love the water.

    You should check out Anna Emilia: http://annaemilial.blogspot.com, she does these amazing watercolours and the textures in your cross stitching kind of remind me of her a little.

    The water looks amazing! It’s beautiful as it looks so handfinished and detailed but if you ever need to speed things up I still have to get you to have a go on my sewing machine 😀
