Worked on the campfire piece again today. This is the part I am excited about. It will either work, or it won't. My idea is to use all these little squares of fabric to create the fire, then do a lot of machine stitching in my crazy stitching technique to try to give the impression of flames that are partially transparent, partially not.
Keep in mind that I am not attempting to create realistic flames (or sky or ground, or trees!) What I am after is that impression of the way the flames dance and swirl into the sky. Still a long way to go.
Yesterday Ray and I decided to make a quick trip out to Ikea and get a futon to put in the studio loft. It will serve as extra seating up there and can be a place for overnight guests as well.
