That's not to say that other textile work will go by the board. My latest 15 x 15 Group piece is faced and just needs the facing tacked down on the back, its label and its sleeve. And "Macintosh's Garden" (or whatever I'm going to call it), is once again percolating on the design wall, now that I have the background all stitched together:
No, the 'grid on a grid' won't likely be done in black, as I want it to be much more subtle than that! I'm just getting a sense of the proportions of it. Clearly I need to work on the profusion of roses to balance them a bit more over the piece. Right now they're sitting rather heavily on the bottom -- albeit this is simply the sketch on clear plastic pinned on top of the background! :-)
But it's late afternoon...and with my next mini ready to work on, and the sunshine calling me for a jog...I'll link this up to WIP Wednesday at TNTN and be out the door.
