Rapunzel: Some greeneries on top of tree

Continuing on Rapunzel, a Marion Scoular project, I have now stitched three different patterns (all selected by Marion herself) for the tree foliage, also using different shades of green.
Just like The Princess and the Pea, which is another Marion project, I am truly enjoying myself with this one.
Been watching Le Tour de France for a couple of weeks now and that has kept me busy than usual as I don't watch that much TV, usually only a couple of hours per day. Sunday we will be in Paris with the man who will have won the Tour. I bet it will be Alberto Contador from Astana. This man is just flying, a bit like Lance Armstrong when he was much younger. Talking about Armstrong, I think he is doing pretty good for a man his age having been out of it for over three years and recovering from a recent injury.
Still time to do a bit more stitching today, so better get on with it :-)

Hi Terry,

I love most of Marion Scoular's designs and hope to be able to do many more of them.

Pat, Deepa & Cynthia,

Blackwork when you have a great design really looks great, doesn't it?

Hi Madziula,

There are some great Blackwork books out there that could get you started properly.
