Just like most of our other Tangled Textilers, I had a really tough time making this theme, "blue", work for me. Well, truth be told, I did a lot of work on this challenge!
I will leave the gory details about this looooong, draaaawn out process of getting to my final piece to my own blog (but that post isn't written yet!).... suffice to say that there is a story!
After much deliberation, I was inspired by Neil Diamond's song...Forever in Blue Jeans.
And after much embellishment (a rather new technique for me), I was finished....
"Homage to a Clothing Staple or Yes, Neil, Forever in Blue Jeans"
There are some tags from jeans... both retired and still on bodies!
Stenciled, painted, embellished word and more tags...
The said rear pocket - which is actually at the center of the basic
log cabin configuration of the quilt-
that's not to say that the rear is always at the center!!!
Some buttons from the fly fronts and
from the suddenly out-of-commission pair of my overalls (oh that was sad when it happened!)
And there is my attempt to honor Neil, himself...
And the straps from said sadly missed overalls.
Now I am totally exhausted. Off to rest up before the next challenge is posted!
