TIF Update 4

I've made my fabric, got it done last weekend, but got that bug that is going around so I never got it posted. I was pretty happy with it but you know how it is, something is just not right.

So I hung it up and started working on another project, staring at it every how and then. I really couldn't figure out what it needed, so I went to bed, thought about the next step and in the morning when I woke up, I went right into the studio......





And turned it upside down. Now it seems better to me, what do you think?

I'm going in to do some threadwork today, maybe some bobbin work, and see how it progresses. As you can see, I used some other scraps besides the green to add a little zing.

Thanks to everyone that has stopped by and left comments.

More later!

Hi Meg - Thanks for dropping by my blog! I have read your TIF progress with interest - I love the way everyone approaches the challenge differently! Your fabric background is coming along beautifully and I definitely agree with you that it looks right turned upside down - I think it is the heavier colour in the larger olive piece that needs to be in the lower half. Will be very interested to see what you do next!

Thanks for your comments on my blog Meg. I agree that you have it going in the right direction now. Can't wait to see the next steps.

ooooh, this looks very cool. I'm anxious to see it textured and painted with thread. Make sure you poste photos.

Hello fellow first time blogger, it was the TIF challenge which spurred me on to get a blog together and I'm certainly enjoying it thus far.
I think the TIF piece you are working on is very tropical and jungle like will come back to see it from time to time.

You are right, the design looks much better after you have turned

Meg, I think you have done right! I (see) a landscape. the greens and olives in the bottome look like an earthen path, in the upper right corner, there is a bright spot that could be a window, maybe a cabin in the mist? Hope you feel better. And the Workbook is fun. Rene

Thanks for your comments on my blog Meg. I think you have the piece the right way up as its the brown which is really adding the "weight" to it, to say "this is down". I think it looks very painterly!

Hi Meg, I really like this piece. I am a saver of my fused scraps, too. I keep mine in a clear cookie jar. I like the piece in this direction. Looking forward to seeing how you finish it.

Hi, thanks for dropping by. Your piece reminds me of Monet, definately a garden which shows how people interpret things differently. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress with this. :)
