I had one of those wonderful happy little accidents with Olive... I ripped the bottom of her dress and was about to throw it out and do another one when I thought maybe I should just sew it together (Olive would like that and it is something she would do). So then it got me thinking about stitches and sewing parts together. This is something I used to do years ago when I painted houses and stitched the silk tissue around the edges of the painting. I actually won a Norsewood Art Award for a piece of work that had a whole lot of little squares threaded together.
I am not sure whether this piece is finished yet or not and I am not really happy with her tool belt, so I am going to sit with her for a while and see if anything more comes.
In the mean time I had another idea for Olive, completely different to the above picture and my original idea of who Olive is... I guess it wont hurt to try.
