I never seem to be quite satisfied with this city. This morning I took the bottom half off and worked on it. I put windows in the house on the right and then shifted it down so that the roofline is staggered. That was hard to do and in a couple of places I had to topstitch. I also changed the black roof on the left house to yelllow. It was just getting lost in the background. There are still a couple of tiny things that I don't like but they not big enough mistakes to be worth ripping half the picutre apart one more time to change them. I also added more sky to the top and to the right so that the houses had a bit more space. I think I will go with this border. It just seems to match the picture better and frames it rather than competes with it.
I now have to decide if I want to add something else. I was thinking of words since I went with snakes instead of words on the jungle quilt. The big question, as usual, is what words? I can't think of a short poem or song that talks about a city. Any suggestions would be appreciated whether I use them or not.
