longing to wear my new skirt,
when I was derailed by a hand full of dead leaves.
yet it bugged me even as I worked on it.
I mean what's not to love
about dead leaves
and used coffee filters?
between a sett of 4 and 8.
But the tapestry itself didn't satisfy--
indeed, once I got beyond a certain point,
every photo I took was out of focus.
was out of focus --
more of an itch I had to scratch
than a compelling path.
I don't know.
until you try--
at least I don't.
And though unsatisfactory projects
are NOT my fave,
I'm pretty used to making things
I don't much care for--
It's just another part of this making life.
to the way different aspects
of the process
and the thing
make me feel,
(rather than just tossing idea, object and regret
straight into the compost pile,
pretending they never existed
and moving on),
such projects are sometimes more valuable
than those that make me sigh with satisfaction,
here are three things I noticed:
1. Coffee Filter yarn and dead leaves are beautiful together
the tiny house I refused to weave
(you've no idea how hard it is to NOT weave a tiny house
but I was trying -- well, just that.)
to take advantage of the April showers,
still wanted to be used.
