Today, I attached beaded Julie to the sofa. This was a time-consuming process because I had to sew her down in-between the beads, making sure that no odd stitches show up out of place. Stitching the sides of her dress down wasn’t easy, either… And, after I completed that, I added another row of seed beads to her hair, as well as her sleeves so that no felt shows through. And, lastly, I stitched through her hands and the book so that the book stays at the proper angle.
If you click the photos below, you’ll also notice how the sides of the sofa really stand out. This just sort of occurred naturally. My goal is to stiffen the entire piece somehow so that the sides of the couch stay like that. Then, the piece will really be 3D.
The song you’re listening to is by a British indie-pop band called Eskiimo. They called themselves Dear Eskiimo when this song was released, but they’re just Eskiimo, now. I came across this band from Manchester, UK when I was surfing around for some new music today. This particular song, Patience, just became my new favourite. Here’s a short list of things that I must be patient for (in no particular order) :
The completion of my beadwork
News regarding an art show that I entered
Inspiration & motivation to begin a new piece
The release of Porcupine Tree‘s next record
The arrival of spring
My trip to London when I will visit Anna
My trip to Germany when I will meet Nina
Another phone call from him
As you can see, Tawny is waiting patiently to be attached to the sofa. What is it that you’re waiting patiently for??
