One day during a class I was teaching,
a student said to me...
'you're just not afraid to try anything'
This statement now floats through my brain often.
I don't think I ever thought of it as a
approach to designing.
I tend to go after whatever will give me

So maybe no fear but there is way more

for cool 'how to' videos.
because I couldn't find the right fluffy
thread to cheat with.
The picture above show the canvas
off the frame. You have to bend
your canvas to get the perfect angles
to trim and trim and trim and..
remember it doesn't grow back.
This is where the 'no fear' stitching
comes to in. It's just thread, if you cut off
too much, you may have to re stitch it.
Just trim little bit by little bit to sculpt
what I'm calling the donut.

The voice was so full of
My life continues to be a journey
with adventure around many corners.
Hope for a new balance now is huge!
Below are progress shots of my newest design.
Sure to be an adventure when I start pulling
fibers and stitching.
