The ghost of a landscape

Battles traumas, wrong decisions, naughty scissors and wrongheadedness, but here it is!  What is worse is that I think I like it.   It doesn’t have the delicate ephemeral  lightness I wanted but it is getting close.  The big panel had to be cut as it could not support its own weight even when dry ,so it is not exactly as I wished.

No2 is under way.   Another  muslin panel has been sacrificed but  reduced in height  and dried with a ripple to make it more stable.  The excess landscape is layered behind it.  The proportions are wrong – dumpy.  Rather than rush in with the scissors it is going to have a day’s grace.  The text garment is made – more of the garment this time. Again reservations. The pet en l’air has minimum seam, maximum sacque backfabric but achieves this through layers of pleats at the hip and back- maybe too many,  It doesn’t sit comfortably with the rest.  I could add details such as furbelows  ( only frilly bits, but a great word) to the pet and trail them into the landscape panels.     The  dark tree taking centre stage  is one done on water soluble fabric.  It is an open lacy thing that could be placed anywhere or not at all….answers on a postcard please.  . It is  too cluttered?  so it will spend a day or two extra festering before it is decision time.

Oh well – back to making the whole   house smell again.  This goo is so bad that I even went for a 6 mile walk in the cold and rain , just to get away – it was more of a squelch actually.
