This is as far as I've gotten on the piece. I'm still not very happy with it. Some of the fibers I'm working with remind me of fur, and everytime I look at it now it looks hairy. My level of frustration is high enough that I know I need to take a break from it and do something else for a couple of days.
Fortunately I have a couple of repair jobs waiting in the sewing room, so I think I'll work on some traditional quilts for the next week.
