Forgive my pride.
I’m incredibly pleased by how this tallit is progressing.
This particular tallit has been all about building up each of the elements layer by layer.
Yesterday, I pieced the stripe into the dyed silk. Isabel had wanted the seams covered by the blue and gold military braid. it was a good choice.
Isabel mentioned that she wanted the silk around the pomegranates left as it was. I kept telling her that I thought I might paint the background a light blue. Isabel was right.
I may add a few more stripes of the braid both above and below the painted stripe.
I have some additional painted pomegranates and bells. I will make two of the pinot out of the bells and two out of the pomegranates. I still have to make the atara/neckband. I am beyond pleased with how this tallit is coming out.
