Finally! It seemed I needed to show the result of this project in order to move on here and break my long silence.
I feel wordless every day for the past month (well, as far as my Blog is concerned!) so will simply post this photo of the finished denim wallet project. Available in my Etsy Shop. SOLD
Best title I can think of for now. This piece is in progress now at my living room chair. I’m adding hand embroidery. As often happens, I wandered from my original intention of doing something quick and easy by paint and machine. (Ha. Dreams.) This started by laying painted lace on denim. I usually have no idea what I’m going to end up with; I just keep working on it until the bell rings in my head for “stop!”. It’s very heavy denim and with the paint adding to the stiffness I am actually using my thimble. I plan to make this a card holder/wallet but……..I’m actually in as much suspense as you are as to what it will be. Well, I’m sure the uncertainty won’t keep you from sleeping soundly tonight.
