Candace Project 7

I may switch out a fabric piece, or two, but I am happy with how the Candace fabric portrait looks, and I think she is ready for the stitching phase.

This is the last update for awhile.

Other things call for attention.

Life beckons.

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!

Candace is coming along faster than I thought that she would!

I highly recommend putting the background fabric on first, since everything else goes on top of it.  It will be easier to build from the ground up.

I didn’t do this because I was undecided what I wanted to use for the background.

Remember…I haven’t permanently fused any of the pieces yet!  I can still change out something if I don’t like the way that it looks (or add background).

Candace

I think I have it figured out.

I am sorry that the lighting isn’t consistent for you.  I guess inconsistency goes with an amateur photographer and taking a photo at different times of the day.

Just a quick update for those of you who are following this project.

Not much accomplished, but she is showing progress!

I have decided not to participate in OMG (One Monthly Goal) this month.  I feel a little overwhelmed…so much to do and not enough time.  Which is ridiculous because setting goals with OMG has really helped me to get things done.  It must be the public accountability.  LOL!

In reality, I simply to need to focus…little by little, inch by inch, everything is a cinch.  

Ahem.

Will someone come and paint my living room for me?  I just wanna sew!  Ha, ha!

I do have an update on my Candace quilt for you.

As I previously stated, nothing is fused, so if I decide to change something I can easily do so.

She wore glittery blue eye shadow that day.

No…that is not a unicorn horn sticking out of her head.  Ha, ha!  Maybe you can guess why that piece is there?
