A Chicken Soup, A Melon, And A Work In Progress

A chicken soup:

A melon:

And a work in progress:

I started making this piece a long time ago, and I still haven’t finished it. I work on one part of it, then leave it, then after some time I come back to work on another part, and it must be a year of working on and off on this piece. I do like the process though. It’s so nice to have something I can work on whenever I like, without having a deadline.But I don’t know what I’m going to do with it. It’s a handwoven cotton fabric, bleached, painted, hand stitched, embellished with sequins and puff paint (and who knows what else I’m going to add). I called it “The sea world”. I have a lot more to do, but I’m not sure what to do when I finish – should it be a cushion? Maybe I should frame it and hang on the wall? What do you think? Any suggestions? 🙂
