Still composed, only more so

The Habitat Project is taking form more each day.  Today I worked with Dale Kennedy and Marcus Larsen, composing on the pinboard and the computer.  We think we have it now.  An off center house with a sweet roof.

The official description :

Raising the Roof on Home
By Susan Hensel and clients of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity

Hope. Optimism. Generosity.
The clients of Habitat who worked on this project filled the room with their excitement about building houses and creating safe, secure homes for their families.  They were filled with pride in their work , great optimism and hope. They generously contributed their time and talents to this artwork, creating a “crazy quilt” of home.

Fabric decorated with fabric paints, dyes and machine embroidery

More embroidery and serging awaits.  But by mid week next week, assembly will begin.
