Watt & Shand #4 Update

I have been working away very diligently on Watt & Shand #4. I've designed and pieced the top, layered and basted it, and begun on the quilting. I enjoy watching the texture develop as the stitching progresses--it adds another dimension to the images, and is one of the reasons I love working in this medium so much. Here's a few quick snapshots to show you how it's progressing. The one above includes a cyanotype, and below is a digital print.
If you are new here, you can track back this work, and the series, by clicking on "Watt & Shand" under Labels in the right side bar. Numbers 5 through 9 are in various stages of planning and execution, and I'm nowhere near to running out of ideas and inspiration.
I'll be taking a break from studio work to attend the opening reception of "A World of Stitches" at the Bellefonte (PA) Museum tomorrow afternoon. (You can read my previous blog post about it here.) If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello!

Thanks! Mary, it's medium sized by my standards, it should finish out a bit over 50 inches in both height and width.
