This weekend I worked a lot on the background for SOTM 2012 during our Lord of the Rings marathon. We watched all 3 of the "extended" DVDs and they are each really long. So I got in lots of stitching time!
I darkened the detail photo so you could better see the pattern.
The Background is coming along nicely and I expect to finish it this week.
Here's what the whole piece looks like now.
