For the past few years I have been customising clothes for myself, and for my kids with applique.
Applique is a fun tactile project with great results and my head often fills with new ideas for projects, and it would be enjoyable to collate projects, designs and inspirations in a more tangible form. I am very tempted to follow Al’s lead and make a book like this one.
Or talk to a publisher….
Of course this could just be one of those tricks that my mind plays to distract me from getting things done. Grandiose plans that delight and distract, providing an excuse not to dust today, or to remind myself that I am more than a domestic animal. I wonder if everyone is full of plans, if it’s part of our human nature to need to think we can be more than we currently are.
I wonder if this is why I paint?
I wonder if a genie appeared and offered a wish (purely selfish) what it would be? Would it be success or would it be a fascinating journey? Which would you choose?
