SEWING SPOTS AND DOTS









 oO SEWING SPOTS AND DOTS Oo
I do not know why.Just because the itch to MAKE happened. 
I must add,a disclaimer if you like...
I AM NOT A SEWER!
But, yes, it is all hand-sewn.

So this is spotty dotty thing technically probably/ totally/ no doubt,is imperfect.Yes, it is all hand-sewn.But...


This idea has actually been percolating in my head for awhile now...as a direct correlation between some paper dots and spots and pebbles I collaged last year perhaps???
 


And then buying an entire sewing box,second-hand... complete and resplendent with darning needles, embroidery needles, all sorts of other needles, embroidery threads, pins, bric-a-brac, quick-un-piks...

And the joy of colour..and  the felt squares in lots of them, stacked high at the little material shop in our little mall, in our little town.

Finally all these things aligned with the sofa and time goddess to nudge me into action. 
So I DID.
This very weekend, in fact.
And now, framed and finished. 
A little bit proud, actually!
