Missed my group

It was the meeting for our machine embroidery group today but I was unable to attend.

Not to worry,  took the opportunity to work on the piece for this month ... The Four Seasons. (Based on a song title.)

I had worked on the design and decided to just do it!
 You can see the basic (very basic) idea in the printout.

I traced the vague outlines of the piece onto the fabric, then laid out the sky, then the ground. All this is supposed to reflect the landscape in the different seasons.

I had noticed that our last winter was extremely green! I don't think I have noticed it being so green in previous winters but maybe I just wasn't looking.

Anyway, I have done winter as very green, summer as brown and the current autumn as a bit greener - but we are in dire need of some rain soon.

I seem to have attached the tree at an angle, so what was a straight on view is now slightly downhill.

It is only an A5 piece, so not very big. (14.8cm x 21cm, or 5.8" x 8.3")
It was a challenge to get my ideas into the small piece but I am reasonably happy with it.

I thought that you might have missed the meeting. I called in to pick up my stuff that had been in the April exhibition and didn't see you.

That's a shame! The display for April was good, wasn't it?
I will have to go over soon and get my pieces.
I had family over for lunch so couldn't come.
I'll try to get there next month.

Yes, I thought that it was an excellent display, we can all pat ourselves on the back! It does give other members of the Guild an idea of what we all do too.
