Changing My Mind

August 28, 2019

I unearthed this small top in one of my piles, put it on the design wall, and said, “Self, what were you thinking?” For some reason, just before abandoning it I decided this already busy piece needed sashiko. It doesn’t.

While I am quite willing to change my mind about the embellishment, I am now at a loss as to where I should go with the project. Make it larger? Bead it? Turn it into a tote bag?

The same goes for this piece. Don’t ask why I thought lobster and astronomical novelty prints should go together. Even if I remembered my reasoning then, I probably wouldn’t admit to it now.

Both pieces will stay on the design wall for a little longer. One of the advantages of being a sci fi writer is that I’m quite willing to indulge in magical thinking, including the (perhaps vain) hope that the quilts will tell me what they want me to do next.

Luck and wisdom!
