Safe Keeper

Another item I got at yesterday's rummage sale was a wool sweater made in Austria that I put to use in a next woven piece today, as well as the cotton handkerchief backing and green striped fabric. I've also included some of my hand dyed cotton and natural dyed silk strips, and the applique is a photo on cotton of a pencil crayon mandala I drew years ago. This one is basted and ready to stitch. The photo below shows one of two tiny pockets with weights sewn inside the wool sweater - I loved finding them - like secret hiding places. Maybe I will include one somewhere in this piece, a little pocket for safe keeping.
