Cleaning out, as I have recently done, has revealed all sorts of this and that - those things that came into my possession at one time or another. Neatly stored away (or not so 'neatly' stored) they have been sitting here waiting patiently for one of three things: a)to be given to someone who would actually use them b) to be thrown away as if they were not worth a thing c) to be used in something new, something unknown at the time of their rediscovery.
I'm not sure whether having a 'treasure' hunt in my own studio is a good thing or a bad thing. On the good side I say "Oh, I remember this -- I must use it". On the bad side I say "What in the world was I thinking".
And so a new-to-me series will begin -- hopefully using some of these 'finders keepers'. My trusty punch needle comes out, threads of all color and shade find their way to the top of my table and the fun begins...
