Yes, it's a tree and part of a roof and some hills and some sky and not much of a chimney. Whenever I get a minute, I am sitting in my stitching chair and working away at this design. Now that I have picked out some alternative threads for the chimney pots and stitched a large amount of the small z blended threads, the rest of the design is going quite swimmingly. Like all Michael Powell designs this is going to look pretty "blobby" until I start adding the backstitching at the end. Those little bits of salmon to the left of the tree will be houses seen in the distance. The bits of yellow green on the left are bits of another tree in the foreground. The house itself is a timbered Tutor. Since it uses quite different threads than the trees and roof, I am thinking about abandoning page one altogether and moving to the right to finish the rest of the sky, hills, and roofs. But I am also feeling guilty about ignoring Hawaiian Mandala. Maybe I will even take it to Hawaii in July, so I can finish up part one.
But not much will get stitched today. I am sure that normal people actually have weekends, where they kick back and do something fun, but since we spend a lot of our time working on conventions (which always occur on weekends), our busiest times are weekends. Today is space allocation and supply list day.
