Resurrected work

I finally decided that a piece I made maybe 1 - 2 years ago was too good to waste. So I cut out the offending section. It was offensive to me - I rule my world - I declared it a good piece with a flaw, so here it is.
I am planning on putting a few more reeds and stitching it together from the back. This piece already has batting and quilting, so it will be done by hand. I think it makes a pretty good composition once I cut the bird with the HONKER beak out.

See more wonderful talent at Nina-Marie Sayres Off the Wall Fridays blog.


  1. I agree with you. This is an inviting composition. I hope you will show us what you add in hand stitching from the back. That sounds interesting too.

  2. Come see me at "Off the Wall Friday!" too.

  3. I have been re-inventing a lot of my older pieces also. I think it is a good practice to revisit things that did not work out the first time. Nothing is really hopeless, we just need fresh ideas about it.

  4. Do you have a photo of how this used to look? I love that you have been brave enough and have the insight to see that a completed piece could be better and willing to cut!
