Too soon old, too late to be a little girl again. Love little girls. Love their giggling, their skipping, their hand-holding, their pretending, their companionship of which none is higher------but now, in 2010, I am so jealous of what they get to wear!!!! Colors, and more colors, and no rules, stripes and polka dots and flowers---all at the same time! I long to wear those things, but they will lock me up if I start now.....
I made these little christmas stockings as ornaments. Sadly, I forgot to take a picture when I was finished, so, you only get the idea. But, I loved this fabric. I purchased what they call "jelly rolls" and sewed the strips together, not knowing what they would become. Then, someone asked me for ornaments, and I knew just what to use. I added vintage crochet appliques to them.
I think these were Wonderland fabrics. You know my love of all things Alice. But the little scissors and colors seemed fitting for a quilting theme.
I haven't done a lot of projects since the shows have been over. I finished a couple of special orders and mostly have been giving all to my second job at the Christmas Shop, which you can imagine is quite busy this time of the year. It has been a wonderful addition to the other things I do, as there is constant eye candy and wonderment around me. I have released some of my timidness as an artist, so it has made me stronger in presentation. I am contemplating almost a complete makeover in my blogging and artworld. I have been doing the same thing for quite some time, and its time for a new look.
I still want to collage. I actually started some of the changes already, but I toyed with becoming three dimensional and after a rough start, decided I know what I know and its best to stick to it. I will collage, but it will be expanded and include more media.
I have a problem with trying to do too many things at one time and I need to decide what I can cut back on---loving it all, it will be a difficult choice. I don't really have a signature yet, and I think that may be what is lacking----the jack of all trades syndrome and master of none----is my thinking.
I may let this blog go----I have paid until June....I have another I puttered on with the free Google.....I may just bounce over there. The problem I have is that I really am a writer and I have kept my blog strictly for the craft audience. I think I want to write. I have so much to say. I think I could make it interesting.
I have been having fun on Facebook, just because it doesn't require a lot of input. Just here and there and I can easily connect with others without a lot of time. But, I know Facebook will not be enough, eventually. I am serious about life and want to talk about it. So, I am thinking about the New Year and what it might bring for me and this blog. I think I can let it go. I think I can go another direction, one I know better. I think I can interest you to come along, even if it isn't about art or crafts....I will keep you posted. Thanks for visiting me. I will return sooner this time.
