Salvage: When something is falling apart, there's usually a piece of it that can be salvaged. This is something I love to do. Perhaps it's a metaphor for life. The fabric around this embroidery was very fragile, tearing at the slightest tug. So I cut out the embroidery and stitched it to my home made tags.

  5. I'm a big believer in salvage of all types. That is partially why I can no longer enter the room that is supposed to be set up as my craft room/studio :)
