Having said that, I did keep to some self imposed 'rules'. Each piece is on a brown tag and each piece has something 'found' in nature on it and some simple cross stitching.
Each piece also has old lace and buttons,
and they are all of a similar colour palette (one without much colour which is what I always seem to gravitate to!).
Some have text from old books and shredded bark cloth.
All have recycled sari ribbon and some have music and vintage fabric,
and some have string.
They sit side by side, tags in a row,
and, for the first time in ages, I'm actually pleased with them, and also pleased to have some confidence back! They will hang in my lounge once the floor is laid in a few weeks' time.
