I began this awhile ago and it has taken me a long time to get the "river" done. The "river" is all DMC floss and various stranded silks, plus lots & lots of Kreinik and a few other metallics. The metallics are mostly stitched with isolated Mosaic & Cashmere stitches, the rest is basketweave.
The rest of this piece will be Bargello. I painted the canvas slightly to make it a little darker. I have pulled many shades of solid & overdyed wools & some watercolors. Now I have to figure out the patterns before I can start stitching again!
