As usual I'm having trouble deciding what I want to work on next. Since this is now my full time job, I'm my own boss and I'm not very good at disciplining myself. My problem stems from having too many ideas and not being able to settle on doing one thing at a time. While I'm waiting for my paper mache clay to dry enough to paint I've been looking for other things to work on.
The day before yesterday I stained some fabric so I could use it to experiment with. Now that I have my wooden bowl looking so nice I'm going to need bowl fillers. The hearts were my first attempt at tucks and once I'd had a taken a step into the world of prim I want to see what else I might come up with.
At this point I'm trying my hand at making a few patterns for Easter and here is my first attempt.
Okay, I never claimed to be good at this, cut me some slack, this is the first bunny I've ever made. I'm bound to get better at this if I keep trying. Right??
I was trying to come up with ideas for making bowl fillers for St. Patrick's Day and decided I need to do some more thinking on the subject. I could always do shamrocks, that was easy to come up with, but what else is there? Maybe little pots of gold at the end of little rainbows? How about cabbages or maybe potatoes? Mugs of green beer? Do you see the problem I'm having? St. Paddy's Day is a bit complicated so I shot right past it for the moment and straight on to Easter.
Today I'm going to be making a few more patterns and testing them to see how they turn out. I have a cloth bunny doll pictured in my mind that I need to make a pattern for. Then I need to get the woolly worm rug finished so I can vacuum up all of the fuzzies. Then I need to tear up some more strips for my next crocheted rug. After that I have fabric to sort through and that could take hours.
What are you working on now? Guess I'll go blog hopping and see what you've been doing.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
