what if this is FUN? using an xacto knife i’d forgotten i had, i made three cutouts then wrapped one of them using 4 strands of floss (2 of each color). used 4 for no particular reason – certainly not for additional coverage because this fabric doesn’t ravel. that was so much fun, i (ambitiously) went ahead and bugged-up the entire leaf. what if we see what else we can do with this? i have a stray idea or two. others will show-up, no doubt, once i get going. might need some magnifying glasses, tho.

    what is beneath it? Mica or something? Inquiring minds are going a little bonkers trying to figure it out …

  5. hey paula. yep, like they say: i can’t remember when i’ve had this much fun with my clothes on.

    yep, judith, that’s one reason this is so much fun: there’s no end to what a girl can do with holes.
