I know what you're thinking. She was moaning about not having enough time to create and here she is giving us glimpses of another new designs, the second in one week. The way I work new designs is I have between 5-10 creations going at once. Some are a straight shoot from start to finish, some are a stop and go that can go on for years. And all of these take up lots and lots of time, but you know that, you too have chosen this turtle paced artistic interest. When two new designs show up in one week, it's just a coincidence and funny timing. It really does not negate anything I jotted down here.
I am preparing for what I believe will be a beautiful spread of items for expo night at ANG Seminar in Philadelphia on August 30th. I've been putting lots of thought into the arrangement of my goods. I really want to create 5 beautiful tables displaying my work. I've got some great ideas, some of which have to do with glass cloches, branches, lighting and hanging from iron gates. I'm very excited about this and I'd love for you to drop by my space to see what I've done.
So, you see, playing around with ideas and making them come to life, all for one night of about 3 hours, would you consider that good use of time? Isn't that part of what is fueling my sense of frustration? I have no answer, except that I want to do what excites me, I need to follow my passions and do what I think I do well.
This new design is part of a big surprise. It will be explained here in Philadelphia, at Seminar. Watch for announcements...
There was much excitement about our Atelier teacher, Teresa Perleberg, who teaches wonderful felting classes using wool from her own sheep on her own farm. This week Teresa has introduced a new class with a new creature: The Beginners Felting class - the Penguin. Stop over to visit him and see how her bunnies and sheep are doing!
I hope you are all connected to electricity and sitting in your cool homes, stitching away.
