just when I was getting pretty smug about how well this was going, I started having real issues with making the piece flow in a way that would actually be wearable
at issue was the big oval crystal that I had added even though the original drawing didn't include it
so I picked a lot of it apart and moved things around -- this arrangement will be much better (and closer to the original drawing)
uh, when in doubt, stick to the drawing!
it's ok -- I've already done another drawing to use that big oval crystal
this may end up being a pin --- not sure yet
this piece is a small block (12x12) where I'm testing out a design idea
right now this looks like long skinny handled spoons full of blue puppy paw pads
the question is how to proceed -- I want to do thread painting to turn these into what I actually want them to be, but the question is do I do that before it has a batt and backing or after
I need to do some research
this morning I need to go get dog food and some groceries for the people that live here -- time to get moving!
