I have always found the conception phase of design to be the hardest, the actual doing of the work in a physical sense is the easy, pleasurable part, there may be problems to figure out as the piece evolves but it's still just mechanics and not that ever illusive 'ether' muse thing that goes into the conception of an idea.
This piece is deeply alchemical and the bits you see on paper & muslin are the basic components, there is another page of the filler elements to the overall deign (story).
For me, this spring is all about integration. I feel a newness bubbling below the surface and it's showing in my work as happens when you create from the well of self.
P.S. I still have stuff for etsy and have yet to list the goodies as I may be taking some stuff to a couple new shops I'd like to be in. As always, if you are interested in anything, please contact me.
May you swim in the waters of inspiration,
