Barn Raising.....in the Studio

Early this morning, after dithering for a VERY long time, I picked up my rotary cutter and slashed my B&W cloth.
And then put it all back together.
When I was satisfied I'd arranged it to the best of it's limitations, I anchored most of it with a glue stick, massaged the barn into place... and stitched it down.



I gave the eaves some depth by couching on several strands of black yarn. The buildings need a little more definition, but that's not urgent.

Cutting and cropping this has reduced the metre cloth about 2/5th. Now it goes on the batting and the sky/ground definition begins.
Tomorrow.
