Sus called yesterday to say they would keep my cloud piece up for the May Show. I was so thrilled I found the energy to want to add the threads. So I began a marathon unreeling of thread. Even though I had 7000 yards of white thread I was afraid the mass was too little to show up at the distance and with the size of the piece. So today, on the way there, I stopped off to buy up all the poly batting the local fabric shop had. In the lower photo you can one bag there and Sue and Scott on their way up with two more. I think I could add even more but for now, the cloud has a smoother bottom than before. Sue, gem that she is, got more and better lighting for me also. The piece looks better than it did, but it still is not as good as the image I had in my head.
