the flow continues ...

With this new embellisher "story-telling" piece I'm working on.
I encounter problems that need solving
that need some good thinking before I can continue.

Because I want all of the tale in this one piece,
using two sides was a good starting point :
as a setting where the story takes place.

But there are also some "players"

To give these "players" a clear place
I made them as a separate piece.
But because you'll see the back of that when it is in place
I had to cover up the not-so-nice back with some fabric.

(hmmmm ... that pointing finger was quite fiddly)

Sewn to the big part !
(and on the other side, the green fabric just blends in with the rest)

And boy, was I glad to come up with the best way 
to use my "magic thread" !
Not just somewhere, hidden along some edge,
but prominently and as an element of the tale.

(to be continued)
