SAL: Trick Or Treat Update #11

At my last posting I had almost finished adding the row of houses for trick or treaters to walk down. It looked like this below ~ houses in outer space πŸ™‚

I have been working pretty consistently these past three weeks. Here is where I am today.

I am still planning on adding a bit more in the area above the kids. I am not sure what but it looks a bit bare. Perhaps another bat, a moon? Any ideas?

    I think the house row looks fine now that you’ve added a few trees!

      Thank you Claire. I am debating on whether to outline the houses.

        I think they stand out quite well without backstitch tbh

    I like the trees a lot, maybe a little more definition between the house row and the one below?

      Do you mean with the green suppose to be ‘grass’ under the houses Kathy?

        I think so, not sure exactly what I would do, but it just seems to want just a little more of something at the moment. However, that could change once the next row is done too.

          I agree, it seems to be wanting more. There is opening (of green) by the front doors, indicating paths up to the front door but it appears wonky to me too. I need to really think about this πŸ™‚

    I like the idea of another bat above the end pumpkins, maybe facing the other way? Or a skinny tree branch, like the one above the pumpkins two rows up? It’s a great piece! Lots of progress, too.

    I would add a bat on the right and maybe a moon between the 2nd and 3rd children. This is fantastic!

    I think some trees would help to fill in the space. Well done on your progress. That little cat on the end is too cute!

      I will definitely be adding a tree. I thought that was a great idea πŸ™‚

    Yes I agree it needs a little something above the kids but not sure what. I will be interested in seeing what you come up with πŸ™‚

      As always I have been getting some great ideas from the group. A tree is in the works for sure πŸ™‚

    Those trees really did bring the houses all together! I’m still amazed at how your doing such a lovely job on this piece!

      Thank you Deb, I have really moved away from the original design, challenging but fun πŸ™‚

    So cute! I’m in the “add some bats” camp, and agree that they could be flying in different directions.

      It’s funny, when I did the second bat it was suppose to be flying the opposite direction and some how I goofed up but decided to leave it.


  9. Carole January 18, 2021 / 1:23 pm

    Some bats on the right side might work. It looks great though πŸ™‚

    Great progress! Maybe another tree to the right, next to the cat or an extra bat!
