The theme was announced and it sounds as “Under the surface”.
The first thought was to make a quilt which will show ground split but then it seemed to me too prosaic: there are a lot of wonderful quilts showing this.
What else can be under the surface? Underwater world… not my theme. May be to look at biology and consider the mystery of conception? There are many photos on internet… No, I don’t feel inspiration for that…
And accidentally I've glanced at the buttons which I just had made in ceramic class.
Buttons are for fastening clothes and what is under?
Sometimes we meet people who look too closed, not beautiful and you don’t have any desire even to talk with. In Russian there is saying about such people: ”He is totally buttoned”.
But very often after you start the conversation with such person, you see his inner beauty, his pearl which is under his surface.
Linen, scraps, pearl, couching.
