Since I sell at craft shows, I make what other people deem is fashionable and what I think the public will buy. Not what I would like to do for myself -- things that are different -- a little quirky -- a little out there. I've tried taking some of my "out there" stuff to craft shows and I either get strange looks or people are just quiet when they look at it -- very quiet. I would love to know what they're thinking when they look at it, but most people are reluctant to be totally honest.
Here's my newest project -- Come into the garden Maud for the black bat night has flown.
I love collage, I love crazy quilting, I love doing my heat transfers, I love beading, I love working on top of a quilt batt for a foundation, I love stamping, I love the scenes I see in my head and I'm trying to get them out. I decided to just do something that combined everything I loved. It was fun pulling fabrics -- lots and lots of fabric. Lots of snipping and placing and moving. Little bits and pieces at a time. Now the sewing begins.
