Out in the sun

Today I took the opportunity to photograph the piece outside in good light. Just a few parts of the sleeves and parts of the right edge need fusing. Small gaps between the patches will be filled with wool embroidery.

The pink frame is to suggest that the patch inside is a picture. Well, it is an abstract picture. I want the spectator to see each patch as a possible picture, although many of them were created by an artist named Serendipity. There are two real pockets left in about the middle. They are open on the back and very helpful while quilting the parts in the center region of the piece. I bet you sometimes sighed "If only there was an opening closer to the middle". Okay, I did that on purpose.
I wish I could have seen snooker last night. How O'Sullivan beat Selby. Hope they will replay it.

Now I am understanding this is a garment. I must have missed that somewhere along the line. It is wonderful. It will be like wearing a story and you will never have a moment when you have nothing to say!

Well, it is not really meant to be worn, it doesn't have a front, just a back. It is a garment-shaped cloth picture.

Your jacket is so wonderful! I wonder if you will derive as much pleasure wearing it as you have constructing it? Ahh...now I've just read your comment below and know that you will not be enjoying wearing it after all!
