I used the 'Green' theme to rework a 20 x 20 piece that wasn't the best, even tho' I really liked it, it was just lacking. I trimmed it down, removed a few of the beachy elements, added the tree and leaves, together with an egret leaving the scene for better fishing.
The leaves are made using scraps of dupioni silk and water soluable stabilizer, in a hoop and free motion zigzag stitch.
The bottom , in real life, the scrim hangs below the edge. It doesn't make for a great photo hanging down. I do like the vertical as opposed to horizontal on this one.
It may still get some more work, what do you think? Should the egret be flying in? or out ? as it is.
