Diary of a Mad Stitcher
Anyone walking into my studio these days would think I'd gone mad - especially given my usual reputation for organization. Indeed - I've felt a bit 'mad' - not in the angry way, but in the crazy way.
In working on a new group of 'people' my ideas and thoughts have been in overdrive. Trying to accommodate the style to the fabric that I have on hand wasn't working. While this pile of clothes might look like laundry to be done it is really men's shirts in wonderful fabrics that I found at the Goodwill Shop. Buttons removed they are awaiting their washing, then staining and then who knows what.
Meanwhile, I suspect I'm going to have to tackle my work table as it seems to have a mind of its own lately or else its reflecting my insecurities and craziness.
