If dream a little dream of beads is a little vague, then I need to tell you what I’m dreaming about. It’s all there, but like all dreams, it won’t be easy to explain.
I’m in a transition phase with my art. I feel stalled, and need to give myself a good kick in the pants! I want to start a new project, but my muse is lusting for something more complicated, so I’m at an impasse. Darn that muse! It feels like I’ve been drifting along, with no particular focus. Have you ever had that happen to you?
I don’t know if I want to start a new (larger) fibre project, a beading one, or probably both? What should I do? Nothing for now, because I’m determined to make a decision, and I’m not nearly ready to do that yet.
So, my dream a little dream of beads, will need to wait for a while, but meanwhile I will show you what I’ve been working on.
I picked up my free form peyote “Dancing” piece on the weekend, and wallowed in bead therapy for a while. It’s been a great in-between project during the pandemic, but my interest is definitely waning. I do love it though!
What do you think of my bead mat? Does it make you a) want to pick up a needle, or b) shudder, and itch to sort beads?
I mixed up too much resin, so had to use it up! This time, I paired the Jet Age Powders, with some decorative sand that I found in my supplies. The results speak for themselves!
Doodle Bits to satisfy my itch to stitch (Stitch Meditations, that is).
They’re getting too big for their box, so I will need to find another one soon.
Gelli Printing always calms me, and fulfills my thirst for colour, so I thought that I would show you a recent batch. They’re actually much larger than they look, and will look great in a future book.
My dream a little dream of beads (or perhaps fibre) post is over, but who could put a limit on dreaming? I will continue to think about my next project, and I hope that you will join me, by dreaming of yours.
