I added more "bits" to the river. It only took me a couple hours to glue the pieces and about that long to free motion stitch around the edges! I like the contour and the depth much more. In fact, I liked it so much that I appliquéd the river to the piece!
Then I began working on the bridge. I drew several sizes of this bridge. It reminds me a little of the bridge that Monet painted so often. A few years ago, I was in Giverny, France and visited Monet's home and gardens. I couldn't believe how small they actually were! I will also tell you, I could see how they are beautiful any time of year!
At any rate, now, I'm deciding if I need the additional rails as I don't think that they are visible from far away; but, perhaps, it would be good to include them for those of us who like to get our noses as close to the quilt as possible! Also, I could put more white water under the bridge to show it off more. . .hmmm more to ponder!
