New Challenge: Post #8

Ok, here is tonight's progress.... it is amazing but the applique part of this progress just seems to lift me. I was dancing and singing in the studio as I worked. I really enjoy playing and creating the appliques to transform the vision I have in my head into reality.

Not sure, but the black and white vase on the bottom left may be a little too big, but it can be trimmed if need be later. I still need to add the tree trunk on the left, but I also think I need more palms on that tree. The green on the left balances the green mass of bushes on the right. I enjoyed creating the small masks hanging on the stone wall. This brings color out from the center of the piece. Need to think about whether I need to do the same on the right side, somehow.

Hopefully I will get to the fabric store to get some gold satin or lame to make the shawls for the ladies. My DH keeps asking about their arms :-)!

I am happy tonight. I can go to sleep dreaming of how this will evolve over the weekend.

Thanks Roberta... that means so much to me. I've always said I was a frustrated painter! Hey does that mean I can call myself a fiber artist??? :-)
