Day 252 : Dorset Dalek

Day 252 : Dorset Dalek

hahaha! I'm sorry, I'm laughing away to myself as I write this. I made a Dalek button! 

This was not intentional. I was simply playing around with natural colours and thinking about buttons on a bag or something else handwoven where the shape would be noticed. I was enjoying the nice pane repeat that the weaving had created. It took ages to do actually! But, it wasn't until I photographed it from the side that I saw the dalek. Once seen, never unseen :) We can imagine the weapons and eye on the other side...

Why Dorset? I started with a high top.
