“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables.
Here it is at a distance (figuratively speaking), which helps it all come together in the mind's eye. I've been looking at it up close and personal for too long, so I appreciate the perspective.

Here it is from the back. Lots of free motion stitching / embroidery to add texture, color,
Then the tree trunks seemed to get lost, so I added some trunk-y yarns to add texture and contrast to help them stand out more.
Sometimes, you just need to get some distance (time and space) from a project to start liking it again. Sometimes, that's what it takes for a project to come together as a whole--after you've been caught in the details for so long.
