But I couldn't resist this one. Especially since sanity is, if we're honest, only a fond memory right now.
Christine Altmiller and Therese Frank dreamed up a fun idea -- A Time To Stitch, a challenge to create something in peyote or herringbone.
Yippee! An opportunity for those of us who love the tiny beads to gather with likeminded people (some might call us crazy wackos who invite frustration by playing with miniscule bits o' glass...). So I dove into the trove of seed bead tubes in my workroom, and grabbed a couple fists full to work with.
The hop is Tuesday (yes, I appreciated the gentle reminder Christine emailed yesterday. I appreciated it more once I had recovered from my involuntary yelp of panic, but you know...). Things are progressing pretty well, though nothing is completed yet.
Tonight's plan is to rip out and rethink an unfortunate turn things took during last night's work session. Seriously, the design I had in my head was gorgeous. What was at the end of the working thread looked more like the love child of a 50's horror movie nuclear fallout mutant creature and the wierdest sci-fi alien you can imagine.
Yep, it was ugly. But where's the fun if nothing challenges you, right?!?
