Here's the first of the pieces I talked about yesterday, waiting to be worked on ;
And here it is, finished ;
Button Mad, which my sister gave me for Christmas, while the boat and duck buttons were left over from clothes I made for my son when he was wee. A family piece...I think it'll end up with Cara, my granddaughter. Unless someone makes me an offer I can't refuse...
I showed it to Robin who said, it's nice...but the edges aren't right. To me, the edges are Just Fine. Most people, he said, would want them to be straight. Now, I can get them to do flat, which is important, I think...but I'm not so sure about straight. I like the country, primitive, sketchy feel that the frayed edges give...as if this piece was a fragment of a larger piece. It adds texture and visual interest. What do you think?
