So after much ado, then procrastination, fiddling about, then more ado, I decided to say adieu to
trying to sew actual little clothes for my gentleman bun, and just sculpted them instead.
I must say, I have SO much admiration for the artists that make the clothing for their creations. For some reason, messing about with the needle and thread somewhat manifests to me as, instead of writer's block, something of a sewer's block or something. For now, I'll have to conclude I'm meant to do otherwise ... which I must say, I'm VERY happy about.
Does anyone else out there find sewing a challenge? I've made a Renaissance Faire costume for my horse and I years ago, but that was over sized and it seems much easier to hide a mis-stitch on larger projects.
As my Grandma Tinnon used to say (she was an excellent seamstress by the way),
"On a galloping horse, no one will notice!"
Now, if only my art customers were on galloping horses! Ha!
No, I've not given up, just putting tiny sewing on the back burner. What a relief!!!
At any rate, here are some of my works in progress, awaiting paint.
I also have a couple of small paintings in the works as well.
The flowers in bloom this week are ravishing red.
My Mr Lincoln rose has gone crazy and is loaded with blooms.
The Abutilon over the pond is loaded down with flowers as well.
The Salvia is looking lovely too.
Have a super weekend!
