Candace Project 6

I haven’t felt this intense about a project in a very, very long time.

Except for the accursed day job, and having time constraints, I am using every moment that I have to work on Candace.

It isn’t actually work…it is play.  

I forgot how much fun it is to play.

I was stumped with her hair.  I only want to pull from my stash, and I had a difficult time of it.  All my browns are too red, or too green, or too orange… too dark, too light.

I finally called my Hubby into the sewing studio to get his opinion, and his opinion was of help.

But what helped the most was having a chat with myself. 

I forgot how much taking the creative process too literally spoils the fun.


After my little chat with myself, I got back to playing.

And I really, really want to shop all of the batik fabric sales that I can find!

  1. Hi Laura! I’m almost as obsessed with this project as you are. Okay, not quite but I am avidly following your progress. You are doing a super job!! It is really turning out beautiful – I think you’ll have to submit to a quilt show, personally. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Laura, that is going to be gorgeous! I can understand your obsession. Too bad you have to go to the day job (even though I enjoy seeing you occasionally).

  3. It’s coming along great. You can always use thread (quilting) to lighten or darken the hair as you choose.
