|Half way to the top of the world!|
|View from the top, overlooking the river valley|
Even so, the beauty of these hills can't be denied. *happy sigh*
Okay, back to the guild challenge.
Each of us will make an 18-inch panel. A river will flow through the entire installment, undulating from panel to panel.
It would be boring for the river to flow straight through every piece, so part of the challenge is to use pre-marked entry and exit points. Mine is higher on the left than on the right. Hmm.
Abstract it is!
|I decided to add some colour to the river, so things are a bit wet here.|
We are all using the same river fabric. It can be altered, but must remain recognizable. To better reflect the sky, I added colour using water soluble pastels. In my eagerness to move along, I also added colour to my cutting mat. Doh!
Here is the start of my Inukshuk.
|No legs yet.|
Well, I asked myself, why make five rocks when FORTY-five would be better???
(They're coming to take me away, haha hoho heehee, to the funny farm where life is happy all the time...!)
|A serious amount of work|
I only hope it will look as good in real life as it does in my mind's eye.

In the meantime, I've used snippets of time to coordinate a guild display for Culture Days. We managed to pull together on short notice, gathering a nice mix of projects to fill our space.
Isn't this a cool picture??? I'd intended to take a picture of our quilts, but when I saw the gorgeous reflection my intention changed!
Library Project Quilt Along update:
Even though I'm not actively working on my current library project, ideas are percolating. My goal was to complete a library project every quarter - but, I'm the one who made that schedule, so I can change it! This project will take some time, but I haven't given up!
