it seems like each day it is slightly changed
and if it was not for the fact that I sit at my desk almost every day and work at the computer, it's likely that I would not be noticing this and would at some point look out and think "wow, that changed overnight!"
I sense that my art is undergoing a similar slow, steady progression toward ---- something
with the tree I know what the "end" result is -- all the leaves will eventually fall off and it will be bare for the winter
I hope my art isn't going to that result, but I'm good with it changing
yesterday I decided I was done adding to the bead embroidery and will now finish it with a back and some fringe and a beaded chain that is a whole new design for my pieces
and I'm excited about where this is going
now it's on to the quilting
I decided that the best way to create the frame structure was to create the "map" on tracing paper and actually stitch the fabric pieces together through the paper
when the whole unit is complete, I tear off the paper and stitch it down as one big piece to the background
I've never built pieces this way before, but it is working really well, so chances are very good that I'll use this technique again
it's the time of year for the making of Halloween costumes
Mr Cute wants to be Captain America this year
I'm working on it!
