Working the asphalt

Although I haven’t posted in the last couple of weeks, that does not mean that I haven’t been working on my tapestry.  As you can see it is coming right along.  I was worried that the center dark shape was too dark but I decided that with the shading of the other shapes this


one is fine being dark. I am breaking it up with puddles so I think it will work when the piece is finished. 

I am just beginning to work on cars on both sides so it will be interesting to find out if I learned from the first one.  Hopefully it won’t be as frustrating this time.

What I am really pleased about is how my spacing is so much better since I put in a line of twining. It didn’t fix everything but it certainly did improve it.  This is the reason I like our study group so much.  I learn something from everyone in the group.  It is great to draw on the different experiences each group member has had and to examine their work.  How great it is to have that access. 

So school ends in the next couple of weeks and I will have more time to work on this.  How great it  is going to be to have all that time.  I am looking forward to it.
