Do you ever feel like the Mad Scientist when designing a project? Yesterday I was in the zone. After hours of digging and playing around with ideas the decision was made that maybe dressing and combing the hair would be a good idea. After making myself presentable to the world (showering gave me time to mull over ideas) I settled on the fabrics.
The project plan wasn't quite so easy. Two small design ideas drafted on paper, cut the fabrics and YUK. As the old saying goes "Third times the Charm". By this time its around 9 p.m. Finally it's pleasing to my eye. Wanna a sneak peak?
Designing(drawing by hand) that scallop made my little ole brain muscles work extra hard. Not to mention that the studio now looks like a natural disaster zone. At 12:57 a.m. I'm satisfied with the progress and can finally call it a day. You see shutting off the brain when in the zone is almost impossible. Many a night has been spent tossing and turning, mulling over a project.
Before the insanity started yesterday and before daybreak a flimsy was completed. Not the best picture due to the sun was just coming up.
So let's just fold her up and file her under "needs to be quilted"
Uh-oh NO MORE SPACE in that file. 15 tops with backings all ready to go. 2 that are partially quilted in plastic bags. In my defense one of the partials is waiting for just the right thread. I ran out and can't find anything close enough to finish.
Well gotta run I'm super excited about the new project, it's a small one so it could be done in a day or two! See you then!
