Making - Never Done

A Thing of Beauty

I really enjoyed putting this piece together.  

One of the things I love about it is that it's not meant to be finished. And it led me to thinking about how we are never done - there is always space for change, for improvement for rethinking, yet there is a beauty in the unfinished.  I've already got so many ideas for other similar unfinished/finished pieces.

I particularly love the hanging thread and the possibility of more and the beauty of enough.

My new branding is still a work in progress - and it is progressing.  Texture, things being unfinished, words... all will be revealed very shortly.

In the meantime I'm off to check out what everyone's been up to over at Handmade Monday and to post this piece on Pinterest

The words are by Molly Mahar and this piece was originally made for entry into her Pinterest Competition at Stratejoy.

Hope everyone has a creative and fulfilling week.




  1. Its a stunning piece of work,its quite challenging to decide not to deliberately finish a piece - but the effect is amazing - I might have to hop over to pinterest to see others like that.

    1. Thanks Lucy - there are some gorgeous pieces over there. Your stall looked great. Cx

  2. Interesting idea, and quite right - nothing in life is ever actaully complete.

    1. Thanks Jane - this idea is really growing on me. Cx

  3. It certainly applies to arts and crafts and we are constantly improving and changing the way we do things....well I am anyway!

    1. I know what you mean - it's really difficult when you've already thought about the improvement before you finish what you're working on. Cx
