Making progress on "Sea View" embroidered wall hanging

I just love doing embroidery. Look how this is progressing!

I am filling in the bark on the tree trunk and branches with chain stitch and stem stitch. 
Some of the threads that I am using. I love perle´ cotton, and buy mine at The Needleloft shop in Royston, http://theneedleloft.com/

I wrote an earlier post on how I designed "Sea View".
