It's Creative Space Day again. Visit Kirsty's at Kootoyoo to see more.
I've been a bit down in the chops lately. My lovely friends here do this wonderful thing where they ask me to make something for them... We've never actually discussed it - I'm not sure if they know that I know they're just trying to help me... but that's the point I guess... they are good eggs and it helps me get back on the sunny side up ;)
It does usually work.
It worked when I was block printing upside down bunny ears onto linen... It worked when I cut out and sewed row upon row of bias frills...
... it even worked when I came to piece all the bits together, sewing in a side zip as I went...
But then I realised I'd cut the bodice too narrowly... there would be side-spillage factor 1000... my friend would never wear it.
I was going to call it Failure Dress, but after a quick discussion with this good egg I realised that there really is no such thing as Success Dress.
I've shaken off the blues again. I'm going to re-do the bodice.
AND, thanks to my silversmithing course last night where we did a detailed study of how to properly plan out jewellery pieces... It was fabulous and I really should, and am going to, use it with all my projects. So, here's to PLAN B :)
Sorry for the ramble this week... ON A HAPPIER NOTE: my gorgeous Big Girl is turning 14 tomorrow. I have that strange feeling of having known her forever and of how quickly time has sped by to get us to this point. I've just spent the last hour looking for a birthday coin for her... and finally found this humble 5 cent piece to incorporate into her card.
Hope it's a fabulously creative day for everyone :)
