New year, new piece

These little 12 x 12 pieces that I’ve been making over the past year are a real joy. Even though I haven’t quite met my goal of one a week, I came pretty close. Today I went down to the studio determined to start something new. That usually means grab a piece of fabric and start throwing other fabrics with it until an idea emerges. So, that’s what I did!

Started with this print and found some scraps that went along with it.

Some simple stitching and selecting some beads and I’m all set for a little beading while I watch football!

However, I am not thrilled with my inadvertant design ‘mistake’. That purple line is right through the center and that’s not good. There are a lot of things I could do to try and fix it, but I think I’ll just live with it this time! The next one will always be the better one…

And with the finished piece, I rotated that center line and added some dangles to draw the eye around the piece.

Fun and done. What a good start to the new year!!!!
