a work in progress- embroidered duck

This week I am showing an unfinished embroidery. This was begun in a class at the Macgregor summer school in Toowoomba a couple of years ago and unfortunately remains a U.F.O.
I hope to finish this at some stage. I am happy with the duck but unsure where to go with the rest of the picture. It's easy enough in the class with the teacher but on your own, you wonder -where do I go from here?
The dam is on our property and there are ducks like that nesting there. I find the scene quite imspiring in real life and hope to convey some of this beauty in this work.
