I started a project a very long time ago – at least a year or more, and I fiddled and farted with it until I fell completely out of love with it. I had samples half made, instructions half written but it just wasn’t going anywhere. Do you do that? Do you hide them and forget about them, or leave them out to taunt you? This was a taunter….
But last week when Emma gave me a gift of some Ed Emberly fabrics , I felt that little spark and it was time to start over. I tossed all but one of the previous 11 attempts and started again.
These two aren’t quite finished in the photo, they now have little collars and tags. I thought I’d name them after the Ricrac cats. I explained to Eloise and Jude, that whilst they don’t look exactly like them, the do represent them in a hobby-filled kind of way.
I don’t think Jude took it as a compliment.
