Finally - SLITHER

It's finished. (It's huge!) You can click the photo to enlarge for more detail. The panel is about 15-1/2" tall by almost 60" wide. The skinny parts of the letters are 1/2" finished, and the wide parts are 2-1/2". There's a lot of extra background fabric so Tonya arrange it to her heart's delight.

I think the letters do the slither movement rather well. I like the way they seem to compress through the L-I-T, and the way the H-E-R seem to be more stretched out, and of course I like the leading and ending "tails" on the "S" and the "E".
Remember this diagram from yesterday's post? Look pretty clear, doesn't it? Well, sorta.

Actually, because in the diagram the letters are dark and the background is green, and in the panel the letters are green and the background is dark, I often got mixed up and caught myself making blue letters! I did get confused a couple of times, and put things together wrong, and had to tear stuff apart, but nothing major. I also made a couple of big changes, adding tails to the "S" and "E". I'm pretty happy with it.


Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers out there!

You should be happy. I guess it is sort of visual onomantopoea. instead of the word sounding like its maening it looks like its meaning. Way too cool.
