I made this for Powerhouseofthecell in the recent TM patch swap. My original plan was to do free-motion embroidery, but I couldn't really control it the way I wanted. So, I decided to just do regular machine stitching.




I stitched the shadow using black and grey threads, the grass with three colors of green, the trunk with brown, the clouds with white, and the willow leaves with 2 shades of green plus yellow. It was very soothing to stitch, but it took longer than I expected. The grass took the longest, but it was fun to stitch the wavy lines back and forth.  I really enjoyed the process and I'll probably try the technique again, maybe even on a larger scale.

I absolutely love this. I thought it was a pattern on an embroidery machine at first. You had a very lucky partner.

Thank you! Is it vain to say that I was ridiculously pleased with how this one came out? Grin Grin

I outlined a photo with a disappearing ink pen, but the lines were really hard to see (blue ink on blue fabric), so I pretty much just winged it. Fortunately, trees are very forgiving shapes to work with Smiley  And, a willow tree was a nice easy style to try this technique on.

Very cool technique. I wouldn't have thought to try machine stitching with these, great idea!

I have a couple of machine stitched patches from WatsonC7 and I tried to emulate her style originally. I think she does them as free-motion. I couldn't do it, so I just went back and forth with my stitching. It was very soothing to make the waves of stitches!
