Is it a lake?

The lower area in the middle of the piece is where the settler’s cottage “should be”;

But………..the patch of WSS peeking through kept on murmuring “water” to me.

So,using some silk and glitzy fibres I momentarily filled in the void.
(That’s ok,because if I still proceed with applying a fabric cottage,it will need a stronger backing than WSS stabiliser)

Of course the ‘water’ is pretty basic at the moment: it would need reeds,reflections and
more shadows around the banks.At this point,I’ll stop a while and ponder what to do next.

I can imagine n/f wispy knitting fibres around (some of) the edges,but am finding that I need to empoly FME and hand embroidery to get shadows and definition.

At this point,I’ll stop a while and ponder what to do next.
