Using Soy Luster and chain stitches, I made a tree. I didn’t draw anything on the fabric, I just stitched, then added more stitches.
The order of the seasons, from left to right, will be summer, fall, winter, and spring. I pulled more Soy Luster in some possible colors to try out for three of the seasons. I’ll have to use some other kind of thread for snow.
I put in some green leaves for summer and might add more later.
For spring, I made flower blossoms.
I hope to work on this some more today. Japan has four seasons, not just two.
