River Dance is finished! I'm not as happy with the right side as I am with the rest, but it's not bad. The right side is stitched with a variety of wools, all in different variations of 2-4-6 Bargello, but stitched horizontally. Well, I actually stitched it vertically, with the side of the piece at the bottom. The biggest problem was the shading. Some threads/colors blend better than others.
Anyway, this was an idea I had a long time ago and it is good to have achieved it. My brain can now go on to other things!
