2nd Chair Pad Finished

I finished the 2nd chair pad last night before I went to bed, there was so little left to do that I just went ahead and did it. The houses are a bit crooked, I think they'll even out a bit after I put it on the chair. It looks more like a boat now than it did before, but what I really like is the colors and textures in the hills. I had a piece of a wool blend that was a bit ravelly; I had overdyed it green sometime ( I can't rememeber when) and it was perfect for texture. The green to grey strips look nice too. All in all, I think this is a nice piece, although it's greener than I had imagined it would be. Maybe that's from only working a section at a time in a hoop, I couldn't see the overall piece and didn't realize how similar in color the sections were. Anyway, on to #3!
