Project on the Go Update

Well I did a sponging of the pencil shading, let it dry and then iron set it - hmmm didn't see much difference and I still am getting some pencil residue coming off!  I don't care for that - will have to experiment more with these.

Ohhhhh the stitching was going so good too!!!  I didn't check to see if I had enough of the appropriate charcoal polyester threads and I think black will be too stark.  So I'm at a standstill until I pick some up tomorrow!  I did do some lighter grey stitched background trees and like the effect - kinda covered up the purple tinge trees at least.

Yep I am really liking this - sort of glimpses of a "Moody Monday Morning" - can't wait to see the foreground trees stitched on the island and foreground reflections added in.

That's how it goes....stitching along great and the thread runs out! Looking great and you will be back onto the stitching with new thread soon.
