let there be light

I put up some spotlights so I can see things on the back wall with fairly even lighting:

The lights are your basic clamp lamps which can take 150 watt halogen flood bulbs.  I bought some heavy-duty cupboard handles which I screwed into the ceiling studs and clamped the lamps to them.  
Then I plugged both lamps into one extension cord, and stapled all the cords to the ceiling and down the wall to the outlet so they wouldn't get in the way.  Low-tech and reasonably effective.

Another photo-based piece started.  This is one half of what will be a diptych:
laid out

 and mostly stitched in
All the lines are not stitched down yet - I need to sleep on it before I can decide exactly where to place everything.
