I am a firm believer that getting stuff wrong is part of the long and winding and often diverting path to getting stuff right. That’s not to say I enjoy getting stuff wrong but I am getting better at accepting (through gritted teeth) that my ideas of wrong often make little or no sense and they may add days or weeks or months to certain projects but they will not be ignored. It’s just better to go with it.
Before I went to Portland I was working on a project but simply ran out of time to get it off to the testers and finalised.
and that's a good thing because when I got home it just didn’t look right. This girls eyes were too big (This is her second head transplant by the way).
She needed new hair, but her body was alright so off to the transplant clinic for her…
but her friend looked funny…so it was of with her head as well.
I remade them both and dressed them and accessorised them and………………blah.
They are fine but I can’t show them here because you will all tell me they are fine or you might even tell me they are great. But ‘fine” is just not quite right enough is it? This morning I am starting again from scratch. I have thrown all the pattern pieces away, I have a cake in the oven and I’m thinking it will end up OK.
I’ll keep you posted.
