shifting shores

I've been slowly embroidering my piece depicting the carving of West Point, PEI by erosion from 1958 - 2000. I have layered the profiles (or contours) of the original shore in 1958 and the 2000 shore over each of the four woven aerial images of West Point, embroidering the two profiles in a simple running stitch, the 1958 shore depicted in light grey and the 2000 shore depicted by dark red.
This week I started "filling in" the overlapping shapes where shore will either disappear or be created.

Really happy with the direction this is going as I integrate mapping, patterning and imagery.
