Close yet....

I'm working on my pieces for the Reincarnated Kimono Project today.  But now I'm stuck.  One piece is almost there... but the shape isn't quite right... it's one of those moments when I'm not sure if I should pull it all apart and start again, or if it just needs some tweaking....  I'm not sure if I've taken it too far... if I need to simplify....  so for at least a couple of hours I need to step away from it.  Do you ever get stuck like this?  What helps you?


On another note, a thank you to everyone who got involved in my Japan Relief auctions.  And congratulations to the winners, Jen and Julia!

yes , some time away from it might help. I sometimes put projects in another room or somewhere different , so I can chance upon them and see them in a different way.
(you know it sounds more normal in my head )

hooray.
I suppose it won't look very elegant doing a happy dance in vintage kimono fabric?

I agree sleep on it, things always look better in the morning :-)

What a bummer, I was sure that your auction closed tomorrow night? That will teach me to read without my glasses on! You don't have another Crane do you?? I would like to donate thru your blog :-)

I find a cup of tea and a little time away puts a new perspective on most things! By the way, terrific interview in *bespoke* zine, yay!
