Night Flight – Progress report

I love this design, but it is HUGE. I had to do something or it will never be completed. So I have greatly edited the design for the bottom half of this design. While still large, about a foot has been deleted from the bottom half – or at least close to it. I decided where the rocks would go, and will decide the stitches.  So the final design will be a combination of the original designer and my own edits and… errr…. customizations. Yeah, customization is a good word! There is the matter of a small problem with the moon that I didn’t catch until it was much too late, can’t for the life of me figure out what to do there. I am NOT about to rip that part out and re-do it as that is far too dangerous. Any thoughts?

    What happened with the moon??? That does look strange. Otherwise, it looks fine, and I’m sure your edits will be seamless.

    The moon kind of expanded on the bottom edge, close to the wing. I think someone must have broken into my apartment and did this while I was at work – for I surely would not have done such a thing 🙂

    Obviously I am not complete yet, I still have a fair amount of stitching to do. I have some thoughts of the different stitches that I will use to give some nice texture to the rocks in the foreground and the land behind it.

    I do have a thought of how to repair the expanded moon – I just have to do it carefully. I can’t remove those stitches, it is too dangerous – so I must stitch OVER them – if I use the right fiber it should give a most interesting effect. Kind of like a cloud behind the moon sort of thing. The problem is that the moon has been stitched in a metallic….

    Oh, you’re a riot — I was talking about the speckled effect in the moon, and never even noticed that the moon had “expanded”!

    The speckled effect in the moon is quite nice in person, it doesn’t seem to photograph so well 🙂 It is a mixture of a simple continental stitch in a fine metallic braid with differing size squares in silk floss.

    Bwahahahahahahaha, I’m sure that is what it was, grin

    I think it looks fabulous.
