Rapunzel: Tree on the right side of the tower



Looking at the Rapunzel design yesterday, I made the decision to start with the tree on the right side of the tower as it seems to me like a good place to start as I intend to keep the tower and Rapunzel for last. I used exactly the same stitch pattern as Marion Scoular used on hers as it looks just right for a tree. I have been using one strand of DMC 611 for both the filling and the outline.
.
The next logical section to work on now is the tree foliage, followed by the bushes. After that I will move on the other side of the tower and work on the second tree, tree foliage and bushes. Not sure at what point I will be working on the sky as that section can be done any time after the tree foliage has been added.
.
I will put it aside now and continue with my rotation, but will be back to it soon :-)

Hi Terry,

I do love Blackwork and mostly when it is a nice pattern like Marion designs them.

Pat,

That is exactly what I thought to when I saw it. That pattern really makes trees look wonderful.
