A surprise visit


A discussion reminded me of my plates and that there was one plate I hadn't made yet. Last September this piece and when it was finished I thought about using the leg technique on a plate.


And so I started immediately to make that plate, love bullion knot projects. But after the third bullion knot I realized that it wouldn't work in the same way. Now I could have discarded the little project or restart and make the bullion knots even larger. These are 60 wraps long.


Instead I fastened the third one on the plate and restarted the next one. The result you can see in the pictures, I am totally happy with it. The plate looks very different than planned, still I love this border. 

And so it became a succesful revisit of my paper plate project.
