I began with the two trees in the foreground. The one on the right is stitched with 4 strands of Threadworx green overdyed floss 1048 for the leaves and 4 strands of Threadworx dark blue/purple 1024 for the trunk. Diamond Ray (p. 324) was used for the leaves and Double stitch (p. 247) was used for the trunk, both from The Needlepoint Book.
The trunk on the tree on the left was stitched with 4 strands of TW 1024 in basketweave. The leaves were stitched with 4 strands of Threadworx 1076 using Diagonal Mosaic (p. 213).
The brightest strip of green grass is stitched using 4 strands of Gloriana Leaf Green in Bullet stitch from Julia Snyder's Categories for Needlepoint Stitches. The little bit of stripe under the green grass was stitched with Caron Waterlilies Redwood in tent.
Well, after I had typed up all this I went to add close up pictures of the right tree and the left tree. I clicked the picture icon and another screen comes up and usually I can browse my computer to find the picture I want to add. But for some unknown reason, the browse button is now gone.
HELP OTHER BLOGGER USERS. Do you know what is wrong? I've tried everything I can think of. Will probably have to take my computer into a shop for some help.
