How to have vision when in actual fact I am creating blind? This is the question I am asking myself today. Working alone and independantly is a wonderful thing. However at times I really wish I had an ear or two, to whom I could vent just a wee bit. Sometimes I forget and use this blog, what is effectively my created space, to do that. Sometimes however it is just not appropriate to do it in such a public world. So instead I shall hold it all in, possible internally combust and then move on and get on with life. Perhaps a wee screaming session in my loft will help...perhaps I can imagine it is sound proofed and that the whole street would not infact hear me and think have lost the plot somewhere!
Sorry for the moan - today I am just tired and feeling alone in this working world of mine. Tomorrow will be better. I know it.
Meanwhile I have taken a few photographs of my recent days craftiness - all involving felting in some fashion - trying to finish the collection of 'half-finished' bags that I often work on when demonstrating techniques to my groups. Yesterday I had a wonderful drive to south yorkshire to purchase all the materials for the dance project - I got lost on the way there and on the way back and then had 2 hours stuck on the motorway (one of those hours was completely unecessary as in my 'traffic-jam induced stupour' I missed the junction for Nottingham!) - still a lovely day out even if it did mean I got no other work done!
This is what my table currently looks like - trying to sort out colours of fibres as we are 'cobweb felting' the simple panels which will ultimately be made into costumes. The performance is 3 weeks on Saturday and the clock is ticking - I will now go and have some tea and try and stave off the feeling of slight panic. Yes, that will do nicely. Perhaps it will give me a much needed boost of confidence in order that I will not appear a complete fool tomorrow. All very cryptic I know - apologies for that!
Hope you are all well!
