I managed to get my Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge piece done early for a change. The stitch for week 8 is the fly stitch.
Here is my ATC:

The background was done entirely on the Xpression. I used a base of tear away stabilizer. The sky has both wool fibers and some silk noil. The meadow is entirely of wool fibers. I wasn’t entirely happy with the front when I finished so I turned the piece over and felted it just enough to cause the fibers to blend more on the front side.
It is hard to see the fly stitch in the darker foreground; my floss (DMC) blended in more than I intended it to, but if you click on the photo you can see the stitching in the larger image.
