test drive ..... and go !

Yesterday I put my own stitching on the SUN aside
and put the Man's stitch-and-burn under the machine
for the last part that had to be done
with the black cotton thread.

Then, this morning, the sun was out !
Beautiful weather to do some burning outside !!!
First Man did a "test drive"
with paper and scissors

The next step was to put all the needed stuff outside
and start burning 

It took quite some time, but at the end of the day : 

... finished !!!!!
There is a lovely choice of tiny pieces cut out
ánd tiny pieces left in place.

The photo I took when the piece was lying on the couch

is the best !

It's so much fun to see how the original colours changed
by the randomly placed dyed "wonder under"
and the pieces of polyester chiffon.

I myself was sitting in the garden with a wooden tray
stitching the bits and pieces of the SUN together

... with every now and then 

some visitors on the water
