An eclectic mix is how I describe last week’s adventures. I have multiple projects still in progress, but two are finished.Yeah!
I will start with this bracelet, I repaired for a friend. It’s a memory piece, but the elastic had disintegrated.
The repair recipe is Opelon elastic, plus small beads between each photo tile, then four slightly larger beads.
A couple of surgeons knots, and drops of G-S Hypo Cement, fixed the issue.
My slow stitched/Stitch Meditation bottle, was next up in an eclectic mix. More stitching, plus beads, finished the project! I love it!! However, I have no idea what I’m going to do with it! Do you think I should display it at BeadFX?
Next up, my “Dancing” piece! I’m fully vaccinated, so do I really need to keep working on this project? The answer is yes! I might not work on it often, but I won’t put it to bed yet. So, ongoing it is!
Two books in progress! The black/white one is a long-stitch book, and the Gelli printed one (an acrylic mono-print), is a Sewn-over-Tape book. I had issues, so both needed to be re-done. Note to self, decide on the right weight of thread, before starting stitching!
I re-stitched the Gelli book (almost finished), but not the B/W one! I bought some 20lb Hemp cord, and that works! It stitched up beautifully, although I needed to use my needle nose pliers at times.
My copper ink experiment in progress!
An eclectic mix is creatively freeing, and an interesting way to work. I seldom get bored. Have you ever tried to work like this? It will bring more creativity into your life, if you just give it a try.
Keep safe, social distance, wear a mask, wash your hands, and get vaccinated!
