Anyway, with the luxury of time to play tonight I have sewn and sewn, adding to the strips I showed you the other night. Remember these?
Of course, I always take pictures as I go along and I strongly recommend you do the same when you work. Here is version #1 - thrown at the wall ad hoc. I like it but of course, I had to see what other possibilities there were. That takes me into the Slow Design phase.
Here is version #2, which I decided was not working at all.
So it was back to the drawing board, so to speak. There were myriad "what ifs," during which I moved things around, sewed, added, deleted, and otherwise potchked * for quite a while.
* Yiddish for to fuss, or mess around.
I will spare you all the other versions (mostly because they weren't worth photographing) till I got to #3.
It took me several hours to see that #1 and #3 have possibilities (see what I mean about slow design? It's s-l-o-w but oh, so worth it) which have to be followed up - but not tonight.
The forecast is for sun tomorrow so I'll be in the studio working on some other things.
