More construction on Psalm 104 tallit

Sometimes, work on a piece really does feel like construction work more than sewing. Right now I am piecing strips made primarily of silk to create a vibrant multicolred stripe between the stripes of text. Each strip of pieced fabrics is fused to a light weight interfacing ( for stability and to help prevent fabric shredding), and then re cut and re-sewn.

It's obsessive. pesky work. My new serger is making this much more pleasant than it would have been with my old serger, which had a tendancy to skip stitches and to chew up fabric.

Tomorrow I have to pick up more interfacing, and hope to finish constructing the rest of the stripes. After that, it is just a matter of adding in the middle of the tallit and doing the atara...The end is even in sight.
