A vintage zipper has revved up my engine, shifted my gears and changed my direction! Yes. A zipper. What kind of geekiness is that? I found a vintage zipper in my stash of cool things. That's all it took. The wool felt has been taken down from the top the shelf. Scissors have been a snippin'. Embroidery thread has been rifled through. Beads have been dumped out on the floor. It feels good to touch all this goodness again.
I've taken a little break from creating from my heart. Instead I have been on a quest to learn. For the past few months, it's been all about garment construction and fitting. Not a lot of blog posts because, well, if I'm truthful, it hasn't always been pretty. Construction has gone splendidly. Ending up with a garment that fits, not so much. A few good things have found there way out of the insanity, but there has also been more than a few projects destined for the do-over bin but currently wadded up and thrown in the corner. Who wants to post do-over wadders thrown in a corner? Not me. So I didn't.
Back to the zipper. It has opened a door that I had closed for a while. The blast of fresh air feels good. More to come soon. Very excited.
