More muslin, more paperwork, more creativity sparked by a love of lace. Paperwork seems to be popular, liked by many and sought after by a few. I am going to continue with this for a while. I have a few exciting things coming up and now may not be the time to change direction. I suppose paperwork is still 'me'. I like to think that it says Karen Ruane in the same way as my work on cloth does. Does it? What do you think? I use the same stitches, I am inspired by the same things, I still use white to the point of exhausting white.
Do you remember I was writing an article a little while ago? Well that is out on the first of August. I have also been asked to submit images for a book...coming out who knows when. I was approached last week about an online feature that requires images. I have been asked to do something In August that I won't say much about yet because it has me so scared that I may run off and hide before it happens...suffice to say I wish I had time to fit in a facelift first. So changing direction at this moment may not be wise....
Thing is though...here comes the but, isn't there always a but? I miss cloth, I miss cloth on it's own without a paper base. I miss hexagons. I even miss cutting out the templates for hexagons. So what to do......try and combine the two...we shall see how that works, if it's do-able.
Meanwhile, this piece is listed.....I have a stack of card and a pencil at my side for template cutting, I am both excited and scared....and in need of another ''to do'' list.
