the other week, when i was “resting my hands”, i made a start on a new zombies project.
in my mind, this doesn’t count as “working” because i wasn’t supposed to be making specific things for my shop or completing custom orders.
i wasn’t supposed to be doing anything at all – which is the very best time to play with something new :)
(ps, i don’t want to sound pretentious about it? but i think of them as 3d textile sketches rather than some kind of doll).
i had a stack of gorgeous new fabrics, in more muted colours than the summery brights i’ve been using recently. my brain: “they’d be PERFECT for pretty straightjackets!”
(when there’s no pressure or deadlines) i enjoy anything that’s REALLY fiddly and completely absorbing because i’m a bit special that way. so next i started on zombie rabbits in straightjackets (because that could happen).
usually i get it right (because getting it wrong is so very very time consuming and tantrum-y), but sometimes…
do you think you could offer this super cute fail zombie rabbit in a fancy appliqued straightjacket a kind and loving
home space on a shelf or mantlepiece?
if Y, just leave a comment telling me what YOU like to do to relax when you have nothing more important you should be getting on with.
the winner will be chosen at random.
competition closes on wednesday the 5th of september at 12 noon.
i’ll post the winners name here, and be in touch shortly afterwards.
thanks everyone for your brilliant & inspiring comments! :)
