Niamh an Chinn oir Niamh of the golden hair

This is a work in progress. The idea is to introduce a character from the old Irish fairy tale about the land of the ever young Tír na Nóg Niamh of the golden hair. After much drawing and redrawing the sketch for the embroidered image for Niamh on horse came about I think she looks suitably self assured .... being princess material and drop dead gorgeous to booth this look was essential! This is the juicy orange golden green colour story. This is the center panel and I am not sure how to proceed .... plan is to look at it for a few days and hope it will come to me! I have made a little cot quilt using this particular collection of fabrics and like the zing factor you get from the zesty orange accent ( did no have enough zesty orange fabric for Niamh had to do with a less intense orange to frame the embriodered panel... may need to order more intense orange to frame the embroidered block to get that colour punch. Next to the do one with a different colourway green blues yellow and chocolate brown.
