"Is it Spring Yet?
Design by Maggie Bonanomi
for Blackberry Primitives
Butternut Days Club

Taking pictures at night, it is hard to do a piece justice.
(Ignore my foot in the shot as well :)
Is it better without a flash.
Or with a flash?
I love this wonderful design and wanted to finish it before spring is over...
I haven't worked on a wool piece for myself in a while, but this one inspired me to do so :)
I usually back all of my mats, but for some reason the torn frayed edge really appeals to me.
If I back it, the edge looks more finished.
What do you think? Should I consider it finished? Or should I back it?
The kit included a piece of Blackberry Primitives new hand-dyed velvet.
So I used it for the middle egg.
It has been sometime since I have had a giveaway. My crafting time has been limited, so I might think of something else for a giveaway soon.
Wishing you a lovely weekend doing what you love!
Blessings, Patti

That is a beautiful piece and the colors show up nicely with the flash. Sometimes i leave the back off so it lays flatter.

I love this piece! I would leave the edges as is. The rough edges add to the prim of the piece. How did you attache the squares together? Sewn with 1/4" seam (opened) or overlap and stitch?
