Melange a trois completed!

It's 9 pm and I just finished. It has two layers of timtex it in, so it can stand on it's own. It has labels and a sleeve, that you can't really see in this picture of black.
I did finished the edges by wrapping them in fabric with fusible on it.

I haven't been in the mood to post for a while. I finally drank some creative juice and came up with my title and description for the Melange a trois challenge.

"Michelle, your problems are bigger to you because you're closer to them."

"The bold red, blue and yellow triangles, which are the basis of formation for all colors, relate to human emotion and it's innumerable complexities.
The waves of achromatic black and white, which represent humans psychological 'right' and 'wrong', add more complexity to the mix and are neccessary for both color to flourish and for people to determine ethics.
The beading represents that proverbial thin line of grey; which, as I've grown old, isn't 'thin' in any instance.
And if you believe all that BS I have a bridge..."

MCQ Exhibits at Roseville City Hall

AKA "The Mimi Pollard Show". You can never accuse Mimi of not getting a job done, she has so many completed wall hangings I can't believe she has any time to shop for fabric!
I took a few shots of my pieces. Below is Natures Star.
In the City Hall Board Room hangs the 9-patch variation taught by Linda Dixon some 20 years ago.

And in the glass case lies my "You're looking through Rose Colored Glasses".Beautiful wallhangings all over! (and not all of them are Mimi Pollards)

How's it lookin' Good Lookin'?

So far this is how it's lookin'.
I need two white glass beads that are slightly larger than 3/16ths, more around 7/32nds; to be where that white bead is resting. On the picture above they would go on the black bottom ribbon, inbetween the red and yellow triangles.
