A bit more wall

Today I  just picked up from where I left off, and sewed together some of the bits I had laid out last time.



I sewed a piece on the bottom and then added to each side, ending up like this.


At some point I decided not to use the green vertical stripes every time I joined something on, and also not to extend them the full height of the piece each time I did use them.  Not sure why, just felt right.

I think I'm going to cut some more holes next.  I did think I would leave that until the end, but don't want them to feel like an afterthought; the theory is that if I add some at different points as I go along they will be an organic part of the process, just like the cutting and sewing.  Goodness only knows if this is nonsense or if it will work, but it's what I'm planning to do.  

As a brief aside, I know that most people who read this will know nothing about cricket, and care less, but I love it and my team (the NZ Blackcaps) just made the world cup final for the first time ever, so a huge yay!!!!!!!! for them.  Sadly watching them get there was no fun - too nerve-wracking by half but that's sport for you.

Linking up with Esther's blog for WOW (WIPs on Wednesday).

  2. I think that adding in the holes as you go really will help the project have a more organic feel. I like that you are using primarily horizontal lines with the occasional vertical thrown in; it is really coming together so well!
