the cloth is mostly done. It only needs fine tuning now- I hope it doesn't take another three months!
All the tying is done with string, coins and beads. Koshchei the deathless is in there....

behind the three towers, three birds who are really young men
stitching for unfolding
stitching before painting
the bird-suitors, on their way to becoming
the longest, straightest line I've ever stitched. half way down I realised the basting should probably be on the other side- it worked, anyway. the cloth hangs straight and even
trial telling.
it folds and unfolds like a storybook with popups, the skeleton in the closet is a great success, the beads and coins shine and sparkle, and give it weight to hang straight, the cloth dances in the breezeI am proud of the cloth. now the telling has to become more impressive than the cloth!
there are many bits of me stitched into that cloth
it feels weird, that I have an öbject"
my art until now was in winged words or dancing waves of air... this cloth is still there after the telling is done.
