Ahhh. The unsuccessful.


(okay, this made me LMAO)

It is one of those moments when you (think you) have a brush with greatness. An idea comes about that seems pure genius. You ponder, you plan, you begin execution and things look good...and then it all goes to hell in a hand basket.

Oh, yes...it has happened. "How is this possible?" I ask to the heavens, as materials have been wasted and my piece hangs from the ceiling like a crooked bleeding lump of...not sure what. Oh, perhaps it could be salvaged. Do I devote more time into this failing behemoth or shall I cut my losses and move on? The sad thing is that it is currently living, dwelling, and nesting in my cerebral cortex and haunts me...must I destroy it to rid myself of this epic fail?

Ah, yes. I have been telling you all of "new work to come"...an "exciting new direction", well, my dear followers, it is a work in progress! Aren't we all!!

On an UP note...I will be in the Australian felt magazine and have another exciting project I cannot speak of yet, in the works...I'll keep you posted! <3>

and think you're on a roll
good luck/chin up

Maybe you just need a little break from each other. Then, back with a fresh perspective! Best wishes!!

Thank you for posting this. I often have things go wrong, or turn out unexpectedly and wonder if it is just me and it is so good to hear it happens to people who know what they are doing as well as those who fumble around like me.
