I'm talking about how to stitch a ground for Luna to stand on. I mentioned earlier that the canvas design already reads "ground" when you look at it. Check out the bare unstitched canvas above. See what I mean?
But I still wanted something there, something solid. You may want to look at Rachel's posting about how she handled this same problem with a Paddington Bear she stitched. She cleverly changed the color of her background stitch to indicate ground.
However, I'm not going to stitch Luna's background. I think I probably will leave the custom gray canvas with the speckles unstitched. So that solution won't work for me. Ok, what kinds of things do you find on the ground in graveyards?

A suggestion of ground is sometimes enough. But now I'm wondering if I should take that last paving stone out again....
