Yep–back to the business of playing with beads and fabric! And right away I ran into decision time, which is always hard for me.
On the back of a top shelf, which I am too short to see into unless I stand on a stool, I found a chunk of ultrasuede in a lovely sage color. Of course, between my camera and my monitor, I can’t show you the true color, but believe me, it’s lovely!
The stitching on it immediately made me think of nine patch quilts and traditional presentations. Is this the way to go for me? Not sure. Is it too cutesy? Let me show you what I’m thinking of doing.
Vintage buttons from Grandma’s button box
Or Grandma’s jewelry box
I certainly have enough fabric to do both, but is the whole concept too cheesy? Love to hear your thoughts, too.
And I did make a final decision on the orientation and background color for this piece.
At least I can feel like I accomplished something!
