I have started yet ANOTHER Quilt Festival entry. We’ll see how it goes. I promise NOTHING. But, I am much happier with this design.
OK. I get it. The “creative” process is one journey best not taken while: A – sober; B – sane; C- not in the mood; D – frustrated; E – ANY of the above.
The Quilt Festival piece I have been working on and I have decided to break up. It was of mutual understanding and both parties are certain this is for the best. I don’t know if I want to get back into the sewing scene just yet. I don’t want my next project to be the rebound type. Sure, we’ll have lots of fun sewing and beading, but frankly, it will be crafting with impunity and we both know it won’t last. No… I think it’s best if I stay sewing single for now. I might be interested if a nice project comes along, but in the mean time, it’s a bachelor’s life for me.
I have been diligently working on my Quilt Festival entry. As proof by these pics in my oh so messy studio:
The corset (no, it’s not a real corset, just a ready to wear version of one) got changed up and the bolero has gone through like 50 permutations. This is the finalized toille for the finished garment. The sleeve cap on the bolero is terrible. I had no desire to ease in canvas just for a muslin. The skirt will be… er… something. I have a few different options available to me; however, I am leaning towards the more avant garde. In the meantime, I have TONS more work to do on this. I’ll be beading and quilting till doomsday.
