A good friend moved from our Upstate, SC region in the Blue Ridge Foothills down to Charleston at the coast.  She had taken a photo of a tree stump in a meadow and it reminded her of home. She asked me to make a thread painted pillow of the pix and this is the result.

Wow!  Why have I not posted here and joined in the fun before?  To answer about the photo transfer, no, this piece i used the commercial forest fabric as the upper background, a light chartreuse for the middle ground area and a dark forest green for the lower ground and then fused the various flowers and foliage and the tree stump on and heavily thread painted it.  I appreciate all the nice comments about it.  My friend was thrilled with it.
