I extended my table earlier today in order to asses my progress with the body bag, the silk sampler pocket/pouch/sleeping bag. This is by far the easiest way for me to gauge where I am up to, what still needs to be done. One or two things are much clearer now too. First of all I have decided not to use lace cloth in this piece. It doesn't look right, it doesn't feel right. I had tried it laid against some pleated muslin last week and thought it would work, would add something but seeing it alongside the silk pieces I no longer think so.
Secondly, and blindingly obvious to me if not you, I need much more, I still have a lot of work to do. There is a definite need for more pleated muslin panels. I knew that already, initially I figured a minimum of 6, now I'm thinking 8. They don't take very long to create at all so I need not push myself in that direction. That leaves embroidered silk panels. You saw the start of a new one yesterday with the hexagon piece and I now think I will need another 6 or so of those on top of that. All in all this is far from finished. I'm in no hurry, it's for me. The longer it takes the more I will love it.
I also did more chores today, yes ''operation spotless towers'' is going well. I ironed clothes, I washed and ironed and put back cushion covers. My ironing board is still up as next on the list are curtains. Way to go girl!!! aren't I good?
