Well here it is all finished! I added some painting to the sides of the large trees for the effect of snow. Quilted in all the background in the pattern of pine boughs with a grey silvery thread. The edge is bound with transparent ribbon....I thought adding a dark binding would limit the view of the forest and end it abruptly, and I wanted the feeling of an expanse to remain. Final measurements are 14 by 26 inches or so.
