More, more, more...

Last Saturday was more quilting of the wrinkles.  This Saturday will be more quilting of the wrinkles.  This project will last at least through my lifetime.  My mother had a hooked rug that was her lifetime project (waiting in her attic for me to take pity upon it and try to finish it), and I think this is mine.:)

Of course, the real wrinkle is that we're expecting a hurricane on Sunday.

Oh, and don't forget to pick up a copy of the Metrowest Daily News on Sunday - there should be a short profile of me and my fiber art in there.

Here Comes the Sun

Another weekend, and I decided to start on some of the sun rays and background.  On day three of a head cold, I thought it might be too tedious, but time flew.

I laid in two of the sunrays (thanks to Donna for finding the right color), and started stitching along the wrinkles that I worked into the felt when it was wet.

The wrinkles are highlighted in copper, bronze, gold, and antique gold threads.
