north country boro - good practical stuff.

the juxtaposition of the corpse with it's kernel of corn--a last meal tribute--and the boro'd work clothes having a new life--those elements together: an epic journey, a visual short story.
ms., i like where you take the story
i need to see this dyed bones idea--it sounds right up my alley!im liking the layered theme here: critter adding a kernel to a critter, patches layered on tears and thin spots, people's ideas layering too
joni, do you know trace's site--soewn earth? i might try it out, but mostly save bones to make folders and tools with.
be in touch!
