This is not number four, just a process I am going through to arrive at a final decision on where to start with number four. Looking at my vintage stash, looking at shapes and lace patterns. This piece, the pricking and stitching that is already done doesn't tick any boxes for me at all but it has informed what will come next. I have a firmer plan, an improved idea in mind.
For me this looks too contrived, it doesn't flow as I want it to. I could keep going and add to it but once I have in my mind that something hasn't worked then I can't ever seem to get past that, flogging a dead horse so to speak. Of course, it hasn't been wasted time as it has fed the next stage, that's what sampling is for isn't it.
I think I have been here every day this week.....you can tell that my collection has taken a back seat. I really must remedy that when I get back from London. For now though I have five more days to work on paper before I go. The weekend looks exciting.....inspirational too if I am lucky!
