Sometimes it’s just nice to make a simple picture, nothing too complicated or meaningful. I have a little cloth under way, making use of a woven moon I made some time ago with some tiny white scraps.
This is a very simple little pictorial cloth, unusually figurative given my recent foray into circles and squares. The foreground is made from bits of old clothing, some of which still had a buttonhole in place. What else would grow from a buttonhole but a flower-shaped button?
Like I said, sometimes simple is very satisfying. This cloth should be finished tomorrow, when there will be a small shop update. I still have quite a bit of work that I want to finish, so have decided to extend the shop opening until the end of September. After that date I’ll review what I sell where. I’m thinking of returning to etsy, since they seem to have effected some changes since I was last there, making things easier for UK sellers. Big cartel is good in that you don’t have to become a member of anything in order to make a purchase, and their fees are very reasonable. Etsy probably gets more passing trade and a larger audience, which might be helpful, but is so big that a seller could get lost in there. Decisions, decisions!
