I always check out the Challenges, but this is the first one I've entered!



This is a machine embroidery piece I made, based on an original photo. I put the fabric in an embroidery hoop, took the presser foot off my machine, and started coloring with thread! I started out with the darker colors for shadow, especially in the tree, and then added the lighter colors over top. The clouds were the biggest challenge - figuring out how to make different textures with the same tools. In the end, the project took about 30 hours. It's now the front page in my theater portfolio.



I took this picture while I was living in Ohio for the summer of 2005, working at Tecumseh! Outdoor Drama in Chillicothe. The cast got to have a picnic in this beautiful field by a lake, and I took this picture because I was just so impressed with the natural beauty of the area.

I hope you guys like it!

Im looking at the thumbnail thinking "that looks so familiar".  I live in Chillicothe.  It is beautiful here.  I love your embroidery work!  You did a beautiful job.

Isnt Tecumseh an awesome show?  I have worked as a volunteer usher a few times. And been to see it about 5 times, it never gets old.
