another abandoned project, well, more an experimental piece,
I didn't have a finished project in mind for it
I retrieved it from the the UFO basket on my worktable ....thinking .... I'm on a roll with this clearing out and finishing things...its quite good :)
Every time I think about doing something more to it, I hit a brick wall and a little voice from my past (A lovely Lady called Pauline, my City & Guilds Tutor) comes in and says "If you don't know where to go next....cut it up and weave it!" (it became the class quote :)
Now I once suggested this in a conversation with some ladies (family who were visiting and requested a little look in my studio) regarding this little piece, the thought horrified them, they said it was lovely as is and that I should just frame it.
That was never going to happen!
So out came the scissors!
Im sorry to say I dont have pictures as I set about it one evening while pondering in my little studio and the evening is never a good time for pictures.
This is what it looks like now.
I did weave it, well I have never did this with a piece before..... I then machine stitched it to some lovely teal coloured velvet fabric.
Im thinking it's going to cover a mirror frame ..... well I have a pile of those that need used up! .......I really am on a mission to use up stash and finish projects :)
I dont think I'm going to machine stitch on it any more ....Im thinking the next step is to get it on a frame and hand stitch some more detail into it and perhaps some beads.
Any thoughts on this? I would love to hear them.
Thanks for stopping by!
