Well, it's been a long struggle to devise something new that I WANTED to make! Months of inactivity ("stuck!") that I think was caused by this inability to design something new to Scarf It Up! and so I created almost nothing at all.
Then I realized that my work was selling well, especially at Port City Pottery & Fine Crafts, and that perhaps I didn't need to wrack my brain for anything new. Keep making the "old" designs! Of course, everything is OOAK in that the yarns, fibers, mixes, textures, and colors differ each time I make something. So it seems I haven't NEEDED to develop new material.
When I also realized that I had several events for which I needed quite an array of work, I motivated myself to just keep doing what I've been doing for the last 10 years or so. And so production has been going along well for the last month! I made the decision to NOT try new things until the NEW YEAR!
Well, then a photo and brainstorm triggered the creative juices.....and FINALLY.....I have something new to show: Feisty Felt Bangles!
My wonderful Stitch Group buddies donated a bunch of leftover wool (and other things too!) for use in these. I feel blessed - really!
What do you think about Feisty Felt Napkin Rings? Haven't tried them yet, because I hate making multiples of the same thing! But, it's on my list of experiments - which may now have to wait until after my next show - a home show with two other artists - at my home on December 1. But.....it would be great to have a few of them ready for trial by then. Hmmmm......we'll just have to wait and see!
