- Works in progress

So, Armadillo Road won out over Georgia's Window (see Thursday's post for more on that) ...



I'm backstitching the rusted bottle caps between layers of linen and muslin that I first prepped for a kitchen towel here.  The channels in the cloth turned out to be the perfect width for the bottle caps, which is more apparent on the b-side ...



I'm now contemplating several options for the bottom half of the cloth, which I want to echo the bands of triangular plates on the armadillo skin.

I also finished multiple passes with the windfall lichen dye, all the while thinking "I'm going in the polar opposite direction of Amy Meissner's Girl Story series"  ...


To no avail, as the color washed out significantly ...



Now I have some thinking to do about what comes next ...

B-side


But first things first ... there's a new home for Griffin to move in to this weekend!


Which means we get to return some boxes stored at our house for the past few months and finally deliver this housewarming present.
