just a few notes

i stitched all weekend and loved it.
this piece may be done. the nice part about having
limited time to work is that i can put it aside for a
few days and look at it again with fresher eyes
when i go back to it. as in deciding if i;ve done
enuf embellishing.....does it need more? more stitching
anywhere? have i gone too far anywhere and need to
take some away? i;ve been working on this piece on top
of a back layer of black fabric as the *border* rusted fabric
seems a bit fragile adn looks like it may tear in the heavily
rusted areas.....if/when it does it will have another
fabric behind it. i;m thinking about leaving the ragged rust
edges and just finishing the black *border* . then need to
decide if it wants a traditional binding or Somehting Else.

just a little thinking outloud before the day gets going.
