"Four Seasons Summer" Panel Design Process

Roughed out sketch in my note book to get some ideas laid down on "Summer" panel.   I went directly from this rough sketch to the final drawing below.  Changed several things as you will see.

Final drawing on rug warp.  The extra inside vertical and horizontal lines were the old size lines that I managed to exceed with the very first panel I hooked so I've had to make adjustments to each panel along the way.  I decided to eliminate the small tree and adjust the positioning of the trees to free up the center for something a little more interesting and more like summer; i.e., sun high in the sky, ladder, clouds, birds, apple basket and mountain range.

Hooking has begun!
