in progress...







wanted to share a new mixed media/fiber art diorama i'm currently working on

it's a bit slow going today as i've pulled a muscle in the base of my neck... really my own fault. it's a muscle that i've pulled many times in the past, and did i listen to my body this time? sigh, that would be a no. the neck was sore yesterday, but today i decided that some heavy blinds in my apartment needed to come down at that very moment (my next project is to either find some vintage curtains or make a pair)... it just could not wait another second!

and there went the neck. i would like to think i learn something in such moments, but i'm afraid i never really do... i'm just a bit too impulsive and impatient (with quite a stubborn streak!). this can actually come in handy when creating... when ideas come into my head, my hands must start working that instant, and i just go with the moment... but in other aspects of life? well, i'll be lying with a heating pad tonight ;)

tomorrow is another day, and another chance to work on this new piece...

what a darling start! i can't wait to see what the final product looks like! neck twisties are the worst. here's to a speedy recovery.

thanks so much, everyone ;)

and the neck is already feeling much better... if only i can keep myself from anymore manual labor around the house until it heals properly!
