Idea From the Past

Sometimes inspiration strikes when you least expect it.  This morning I was visiting eBay, checking the status of auctions I am following, and the notion took me to explore the completed needlepoint pieces for sale there.   I stumbled across this piece.

Look at the background.  It's columns of varying widths of satin stitch, gradually increasing as you look from right to left.  Isn't that a clever background?!  The next time I am totally stumped as to how to handle a background, I'll remember this.

Thank you, unknown stitcher!
