River Dance

This is a new design I call River Dance. Sorry for the poor photo, light was bad this morning!  
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!

This looks very interesting. I await updates. Not patiently either.

What SL said. We are sitting on the couch together, eating popcorn and speculating on What's Next. Don't make us wait!
