Today's project start
Instead of plastering, I'm playing with fabric.  The photo is what I've chosen for this next project.  The fabrics are, of course, subject to change, but I've been planning this particular project in my head for the past two weeks and it refuses to say in my head any longer.

About the plastering...  

Later:  

Here is a preliminary sketch of the design that I came up with while on my trip

Next is what I designed on my computer.  The end work won't look like this, of course, but making this design shows me I need to find one or two clear grays in my fabric stash.
