A New Wall Hanging!

I have been so busy making table runners for friends and charity auctions... it is nice to actually be working on something that I am being paid to do. I am going to bring a few pine pine boughs in from the top left corner, and stitch in some grass around the rocks. Not sure how I am going to stitch in the border... maybe a simple vine.

The white thread used in the water and on the egret is a very old silk thread... so old it is on a wooden spool! It has yellowed somewhat with age and matched the Fairy Frost fabric of the egret perfectly.  

When the hanging is finished it will be stretched around a wooden frame (which my DH builds) with 2" of the border showing.
I'll post more when it is completed.

Hugs from Mary and Happy New Year!
