Hand Embroidery

This is a small hand embroidery of a landscape I started. I still like it, especially the colours and the stitches, but I haven't touched it for so long I wonder if I ever will finish it. Is it a UFO (Un-Finished Object) or WIP (Work In Progress) ? I can't decide!

It was inspired by a hand embroidery article on stitched landscapes in an early Embroiderers' Guild Stitch magazine and the colours in this monoprint called "Logan Rock" by Reina de Weijer
