Finally some time to play in the sewing lair. A whole afternoon to play!

I had made a table runner - a spiral table runner seen here http://thesewinggeek.blogspot.ca/2012/06/been-busy-with-lots-family-all-home-for.html

I had a bunch of leftovers and I hate to see waste so I assembled them. The colours are some of my favorites. I was excited to use them and going through my stuff I found other things to add.
The following pictures shows the process.
Now is the piece finished or do I add some more beading.
The piece will be called Harmony. Not because the lines match up because they don't. But because this is the way I would like to see the world. All different pieces coming together in a Harmonious pattern.

Comments are welcome!

Update: After making this piece and adding a bunch of embellishments I entered it into the BFA guild show last fall. It was not juried in. I was not there for the Jurors comments.
I ended up taking all the embellishments off. And just placed on yoyo with dangling beads on it. I liked the result much better.

I  entered two pieces into the BFA's latest show at the Greenwood Gallery in Guelph on until May 2013 and this piece was accepted. I can't wait to see it hanging the next time I go to Guelph.

Interesting Thought...

If you never put yourself out there, risk or try you do not grow.
If you try and succeed you feel great and will try again.
If you try and do not make it what is in people to keep trying and why do some give up.

Just thinking....
