Surgery

The poor knit-up was feeling a bit droopy. She needed some surgery (I zig zagged, then trimmed the knitting). After I took off the excess yarn, I removed the very dirty tags and added some new tags and a new label (made of Tyvek and alcohol inks)-- she's back on her pole now, after a days vacation. See, surgery is necessary to make our lives whole again. Or something like that, anyway.
Ray asked me if I could make a wall hanging with the cut off panel. Why, yes, yes I can. I'll attach some of my favourite tags onto it too.
SEIZE THE DAY!!!
Live each day to the fullest. Please.
***later edit -- not to worry, the patient is doing well :)

she had a nip and tuck! No swelling either...wish it could be the same for humans...

SO lovely that you had to fix her up so she looks her best.

How wonderful to be able to fix such a comforting and artful treasure. I love the idea of making a collage of the tags and surgically removed parts.
