Robbie asked the other day, if the numbers 57 had a specific meaning.....oh I wish I could share a really interesting story behind this design...but alas....these are the numbers that fit and were available when I was resist dyeing some wool I had felted. I wasn't satisfied with my first attempt of surface.....esp. with the blueish beads.....which in person just don't work.
So, I took them off....what else is new....that seems to be my pattern when working with these tiny pieces.....I add and subtract until I'm satisfied! There's a minimum contrast to the dye which adds to the embellishment difficulty. It's better now and I'll probably play around a little bit more before adding a backing and perhaps incorporating threads or beads along the edging. Will keep you posted.
I just hope someone else is drawn to these numbers so it will have a happy new home when I'm finished!
