revision



When I unfurled yesterdays start today I wondered who put acid in the yogurt so I dismembered and cannibalized it right down to the dirt.

One false start after another finally got me to this place by about 10pm.  Now it's working for me and basting is under way.

I really loved that "storm cloud" commercial batik that I wrapped around it yesterday but it was just too busy  and had to go back in the stash for another day.

I like the dark background much better. Can´t wait to see the stitching.

This is a beautiful piece and I love the way the colors play with each other!

This is really pretty. Kind of different from some of your other work? Is this the backgroud cloth you got rid of, or the one you have now? I'm hoping it's the one you have now, 'coz I LOVE the way this looks. The spattered white/browns cloth looks like the night sky filled with stars, the black/white flower print cloth is the universe beyond. A COSMIC GARDEN!!!

Wow what a change from one to the other. The dark background brings this all into focus now. I really like your play of lights against darks in this version.

This is beautiful, Deb. It's hard to kill your darlings. (Stephen King description of this process of weeding)

So gorgeous ... I feel like the central squares are being protected by the embrace of a magnificently large woman ... and there's the moon ... like a dream.
