take it from the top

Beginning of Jenny's Marsh. Sky and island. Acres of marsh yet to accomplish.

I started a commission piece today. A friend and I have been talking for two years (we move slowly) about what might work in her house. We had an enormous plan to make a set of pieces that would fit under the eaves in her bedroom, but that wound up not working so well.

This spring, we agreed on a nice open location, and a feeling for what she wanted for a topic, and I finally started today. I dyed the silks for the sky and water this morning, and got the top parts of the work blocked in and started stitching.

Updates as they occur!
