and the inspiration for all the festivity at dome central? well, the kids (grown and grand-) will come down on the 24th and it just doesn't seem right to have santa-believers in the house on xmas eve and not have a tree.
here's the latest update on the time piece (i love calling it that!!)
all this has been fused on now, 2 watches have been attached... i found some fine almost-invisible thread which i think will work to keep the watches in place, tho i might have to use super-glue in places. and i learned something about using dupioni silk as a foundation fabric... don't do it! that's what the solid green is and it's stretched and puckered and is creating a challenge. so, there will be a LOT of surface embellishment on that piece.
