This is pretty much my only Easter decoration...an Easter tree:
Here is the little design wall again. I was going to crop the photo but decided you might like to see a full shot. See the dragon tail over on the left? There is a silky stuffed dragon sitting on top of my dress form.
You can just make out a little witch cutout on the design wall. She is a leftover from a previous project. That shelf is actually the top of my bookcase that holds all my quilt and craft books.
Here is the progress on the Cathedral Windows quilt:This is all sewn together. I have a LONG ways to go, but it is rewarding to work on this project each night, as I watch TV.
I've been thinking a lot about my artistic moods of late. I don't know if I can explain it or not. It is like I don't believe in fantasy anymore and therefore can't seem to nail down anything in my head, to inspire a project. I want to make something with that tree that I posted a while back. I have had many ideas about it, but every time I go to thinking I will start the project, my brain stops working. I don't know if I fear hating what I start doing or fear failure or what the problem is?
I will work it all out eventually. Part of my brain says "Why bother making this? It will just collect dust and isn't practical and no one would buy it." I don't know where the idea of having to make art and make money with an art project got stuck into my gray matter, but it is really tripping me up!
The tree is almost dry enough to shellac. Then it will sit on my studio table, daring me to do something with it. It's good we don't have a fireplace!
