Big challenge

Next month I have an exhibition of textile Art on the Golfcourse. I finished 8 nice pieces and thought that is enough, but I decided to make an other piece about 4 times the size of the other ones. It is a very complicated one. Many small details. Today I started and worked  8 hours. Now that I have my studio back again, at least I have plenty of room to trow all my scraps of fabric around to find the right colours and thickness. I started with the sky, a scrap from handpainted crepe silk. The desigh is from a small picture and I have made a scetch in the size I need.

I have to build my work from the top down to not get lost, also I must plan everything carefully and take the background first. Otherwise I can not sew it anymore. Anyway here are some more pictures.
                                                This is for reverence what colours I use.
The beginning is made
I must say that this time it is much more difficult for me to write everyday for the challenge then in April and I am not so sure if I can finish all the 31 post for this month. But I made the choice! I will keep You informed  about my progress. Tomorrow I will post a children story which I wrote.
