third meditation panel update

I have finally figured out how to join the nine narrow couched panels of the third meditation panel together. The method involves both machine and hand sewing. I am pleased with the result. More difficult was the decision to take out some stitches and fabrics and then re-stitch them. I really struggled with removing this work. I hope that those who helped put those stitches in won't mind some re-sewing this coming Thursday. Designing is hard work. The colours we used intuitively in the smaller parts were too bright when seen altogether. If this was a painting, the area would need to be re-painted. And it's not a waste of time. It's time spent doing something well. Until it's right.
