Knot! News - Weekly Update
I don't have a lot of news this week. Mostly, I have been struggling with my artist's block. My strategies finally worked! I already mentioned in last week's update that I spent the day working on logos for my headers and business cards. I mentioned that sometimes this kind of activity triggers my creative energies to get rolling again. And, it was something I could convince my brain to work on.
Well, I have been able to get back to beading and pattern making since then. This week, I have gotten the photography done for "Fans Earrings Pattern" (photo top right) and "Ripple Bracelet Pattern". I have worked out earrings for "Ripple Bracelet" with a couple of variations and will be getting the photography done on them soon as well. So....I believe that barring any unforeseen obstacles, I should be able to get all three patterns finished next week. I even have a few new design ideas.
I ran out of Size 11 delica beads (needed for "Fans"), so I ordered some more, along with some other beads (of course). When they arrive, I will be able to make up some kits for the "Fans Earrings Pattern", (and some more for the "Fans Bracelet Pattern").
The bottom line...I am creating again, but the results won't be available until next week.
Still too much rain for sailing here in Central Texas and more on the way. Oh well.
