Triceratops Project - Part Five

I am still working on my triceratops project.  Since I last posted about this, I have filled in the rest of the tree leaves.  I have used a straight stitch with a single strand of floss to fill them in. 

I am using the same method for the plants on either side of the text:

And also for the text:

I haven't made any progress on the volcano since my last post.  I think I will use the same filling method for the actual mountain. 

Here is the triceratops...I have a bit more progress to show:

This project has really been fun.  I like these patterns and the way they are working together. 

A very young relative of mine likes these patterns too; but not for embroidery! 
He loves dinosaurs and he helped me color these...he chose the colors and did some of the coloring :)

I love the way you are filling in the leaves and text. It is "clean and uncluttered" but still does the purpose of filling in. I think it looks great.

Thank you Darlene! I like the uncluttered look too - I think it will really work for the volcano and smoke.

You have created a simple and a nice design. I like your way of filling the trees and dinosaurs in the design. I personally like to work on small projects related to nature.

Ellie Stratton - Thank you! For these bigger scale projects, this fill is really easy and quick to do :)

Kim, you are absolutely right. Instead of just doing close stitches, we can use your way for working on bigger projects. This type of filling is easy and looks good.
