stitching to the finish line

I've been doing a bit of stitching lately. Well... quite a bit actually. This piece I have been working on, has been rather demanding in the stitching department. Each time I thought I was coming to the finish line, it demanded more! I was happy to oblige! And now it told me it was done and I may share it with the world...

Now back to the studio, back to another started artwork which is due very very soon and I know will be very demanding. But that's all good, because I feel the pull of it now and nothing is going to stop me.... Off to the studio!

Wow! That is absolutely awesome! I can see how it called for more and more. And it's totally worth all the time you put into it. The colors, the drama of the sky, the sketchy quality, and all that luscious stitching -- it's fantastic!

Natalya, that is fantastic. I love the mix of hand and machine stitching and the use of different threads.

Natalya, that is so impressive. I kept trying to zoom I. To see the detail. Is that crewel work, yarn? Or a mix? Just stunning.
