September TIF finished maybe


This pic shows the curtain wall just finished.

This pic shows an experiment with a bit of crochet sewed on to represent the cobbles.

This pic shows the cobbles unpicked along with some of the blue shadow, and this is how I'm leaving the piece for now. As usual, I was wildly enthusiastic about it while I was working on it, but now that it's finished it reminds me of a cheap souvenir cushion cover - probably the satin backing making me think this. It's pinned up on the studio wall for now. I'm looking forward to the October challenge, and am starting to think what I want to do for my October BJP page as well.

Well I for one think this is a wonderful work of art! I'm afraid I haven't done mine yet.

I think you did a wonderful job on this. If you don't like the satin background perhaps you could stretch it out and paint it a bit. But the embroidery is beautiful.

This hardly looks like one of those souvenir pillows -- it is an incredible work of art and I applaud you for executing it so well!
