I finished more projects this week:
Origami Bauble (AKA Little Turtle) from Unit Origami by Tomoko Fuse
Café curtains. Finishing this project was a milestone for me since I’m an insecure and untrained seamstress. Curtains, however, are pretty easy and I’m pleased with the results. I especially like these curtains because the material looks gauzy when daylight is shining through and opaque when it's dark outside. All you theater geeks know this material as scrim.
I also finished my sister’s birthday present but I can’t unveil it yet. I want her to be surprised.
I’m very inspired by this video. I just love her and I really need to hear over and over that one should create without looking for hidden benefits. Creativity isn't about results or sellable items. It's about process. I have a really hard time remembering that because the final product tends to be my focus.
Also, there is a demonstration later in the video that shows a really cool crayon melter device in action. I may have to get one of those.
