Knotted Up

It was a quiet day here. A few errands, a run, the final episode of Justified on the DVR (so. good.) and a whole lotta knots to tack down the new border to the original piece.
It has begun to look a little quilt-like in pattern and color. For whatever reason I didn't envision this. I think it is saved from being too country-kistch by the dyed fabrics and the color scheme. I'm rather fond of the organic look that the unevenly dyed fabrics bring to the weave. I used the knots to try to emphasize the color blocks. Now it will have to stew for awhile until it tells me what to do next.

I like the way the weave seems to make the colours merge, especially the golds and reds.

yes, sometimes you just have to leave a project till it speaks...or the end result suddenly flashes into your mind

Hi Alex I'm liking that merge too, the more I live with this piece the better I like it
Hi Jan it seems to be suggesting more trees right now I'm going to keep listening to it
