Childhood Home Rug

I finished all the drawing on the rug depicting my childhood home. I'm hoping to transfer it to the backing this afternoon. This will be my first attempt at filling in multiple pines and I've been looking over Anne Marie Littenburg's book on landscape rugs along with Jane Green Halliwell's book on pictorial rugs. This may take some work as I'm going to use a lot of yarns in the rug. Here is a photo of some of yarn I got from Webs.

I'm really happy with the greens, and I think the gray/brown (up front in photo) will lend itself to the bark well. It has a bit of a silver filament running through it, which I'm looking forward to using.

Hoping I'm not biting off more than I can chew!
