How sweet is that flying geese pillow up there? I had this crazy compulsion to make it. Like I knew that it was completely impractical to spend 10 hours piecing and quilting it when I had bags to be cranking, but I love it so much!! It was nice to spend time mindlessly sewing instead of thinking "does this need a pocket?" "If I make this strap long enough for a giant like me, will a shorter person wear it well?"
I'm going to price that sucker accordinng to time. I don't even care if no one buys it. It looks pretty darn nice on my red couch.
I'm so impressed with myself for sticking with the blog-posting thing. I could never keep a diary as a kid, or now for that matter. I would go back and read what I had written and be horrified by my pompous dronings. But I like that I can post my artwork, and you can all see what I've been working on. If I start writing about who I have a crush on and why they don't love me back and what 7th grade girls are mean/stupid, then I will cease blogging. I must make a pact with myself never to do that.
I think I made my last bag before the Revolution of Craft this morning. Now onto booth design, merchandise pricing and packing.
Yesterday's tv appearance went well. I refuse to watch it myself because I felt like I was fairly fabulous, and I don't want to ruin that delusion. My boyfriend's critique mentioned my shaky hands and he said that it all happened too fast. Well, that's what TiVo is for, right? Or the internet.
