Linear Stitching 2

I am still fascinated by the dry-stone walls that define the Pennine landscape around me. I thought that once completed I would move on to some new subject but I can't quite let go.

I have been re-working previous samples with my new found love of linear stitches. I chose earthy browns and heather colours and added some seed stitch in the shape of a stone.

Using a palette of greens I have allowed my needle to wander over and around the fabrics like a footpath or the outlines of the walls seen from a distance. These stitches are gently guiding the viewer around my work, drawing attention to details that might otherwise be overlooked.
