Blue hands.

The exhibition prep is looming and with less than one teaching week left after the easter hols the pressure is on!
These last few weeks have been tough but everything is slowly starting to make sense. I have dyed and sewn my way through the month and im not stopping yet! Everything is go go go.
Im probably about half way through my final piece, its not perfect but hey.. some of the best ideas come from the worst mistakes...... dont they?
I managed to find time to actually relax yesterday, i did nothing all day and it felt good, im pretty exhausted!
Money is becoming tight and all i seem to do is buy things for my project, maybe i should sell some shoes?

I have a few sample pics to put up this time, i have had a some more ideas from looking at my work through a lense, it kinda makes you see it in many ways instead of just the one.

Ok thats enough for now i think, Jeremy is cooking up a storm tonight so i better get this sewing finished.

Just playing with a few ideas..

Tears and tantrums....

Well i have come to the conclusion that i am unstable, im happy, im sad, im excited, im fed up, im laughing, im crying... iys been an emotional day. I cant handle any more pressure i find myself flying off the handle in one way or another at the smallest things, whats going on? its like someone has stolen me and sent me somewhere to watch this alien creature control my body.... extreme i know but thats kinda how im feeling right now.

Anyway enough crazy talk.... My project...

Well after a very stressful day i seem to be onto something, it seems like its coming together, i now know which fabric and approx how much i will need and i know approx how much this is going to cost me..Carrie+organisation? nah.. i really mean it when i say 'approx' :)

A few things from this evening...

I like the tight pleats but the loose ones are great becuase i can trap things in between and they are still visible.... a work in prgress i know but i feel quite excited about the direction im going in.

Time for bed i think, woah its late!
sleep time
