Greenman Decision Time

Hello All,

The title of this post is a bit misleading.  When you create anything you are making decisions continuously.  I'm getting to the point where I have to decide on how I'm going to finish my piece.

Since I started tracking my time on the 21st, I have spent 16 hours and 22 minutes beading.  I love Toggl.

I don't think my idea of attaching it to my green & brown scarf will work.  The Greenman is heavy with beads.  It would make the yarn sag.  Too bad though, it would be really nice together.  They both have an earthy, organic feel.

The canvas I was thinking about using has a larger wooden frame on the back so my piece is already too large for it.  I could go shopping at the art supply store (yeah!) or keep exploring ideas.

I have a lovely piece of brown linen . . . but even if I added more batting and quilted it all together, I don't think it would be sturdy enough.  Over time it would sag.

My vote is the art supply store.  It's a great place for inspiration.

Hope you're all staying warm and creating beauty.
