I went on a hunt through antique stores, thrift shops and found an old skeleton key and decided that I would do a rubbing. I didn’t like the result, so I set the key aside. The piece needed some hand stitching along with the machine quilting to add what I thought would give it some depth.
It still needed something else, but what? I added just what an old key would need; keyholes. Next, I added the keys. Everyone needs THE RIGHT KEY to open something, don’t they? There you have it.
