This one has a lumpy bumpy bit along the edge where the process of needle appliqué has distorted the woven ground. I was a bit unsure – we are taught to think of lumpy things as defective – but now I love it because the material did what it needed to to incorporate the making. We should learn to love the wonky things – like imperfect vegetables.
