What was your inspiration?
I love walking in the Cotswolds and this is a typical scene - rolling hills, inquisitive sheep and blue skies with the occasional cloud (on a good sunny day that is!)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
There is a really good, clear, colour Intarsia chart to follow for the countryside scene. If you wish you could embroider the tufts of grass and the sky and hill stitches on the trees later.
