means that I'm finding all sorts of things that I'd put aside. At first glance, this rust dyed piece looked complete; closer inspection, however, told me that I Really Don't Like the stitching. I'm mostly allergic to frog stitch, but I think, given that the rusted areas are interesting, I'll take out at least some of the stitching, and replace it with... I know not what, yet, but I'll think of something. The larger stitches definitely need to come out; I can't make up my mind about the smaller ones. They are the wrong colour, I think... but better, perhaps, or at least, simpler to stitch over them in a more appropriate colour. Of course, if that doesn't work, it'll be Even More Stitches to take out...but I'm game to try, because I think it will be okay.
Here's a close up of that bottom element, which I like a lot.
Remember yesterday's pieces? Well, I decided to try the blue one in a mount, and have decided not to touch it. It's called 'Rock Fall', and I'm fairly pleased.
