Rule # 6 has been standing out in my mind lately. It says "Nothing is a mistake. There's no win and no fail. There's only make."
Here are some unfinished projects that I am working on at present. I never throw anything away and will always make a mistake work somehow, someway. In a previous post of mine, Paula Gron made a "blow-out" in her basket work for her. She didn't do it over or throw it out, she worked with it and everyone thought it was supposed to be that way (they never would have known it was a mistake if she had not told them) and they loved it.
All of these projects have so called "mistakes" but I'm making it work. All of these WILL be finished, that's one of my goals, and then I'll post the end result later.
This one is my Blue Moon piece. It has my hand dyed fabric and paper fabric. I have not stitched anything down yet. It's just all placed like I want it possibly. I may change it. Who knows. The Blue Moon this year was an inspiration to me and on 01022010 I started this piece. That date is a palindrome and that along with the blue moon I know this one will be good in the end.
This one below is a feather bleach discharge piece. Just have ideas for this one so far.
This one is my own soy wax batik bird piece with fabric paper around it. Quilted around the bird but that's as far as I've got so far. Have more ideas for this one.
This one with the Goddess and Hummingbirds will have lots of stitching, probably hand stitching on it. It was inspired by another piece I saw. It uses shibori fabric that I made and some more of my hand dyed fabric.
