2  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Art Dolls 3 - Send out Monday April 21, 2014 on: April 14, 2014 06:20:48 AM
Whew, I finished today. We had our photo shoot out in the garden next to some lovely crocus and she posed like a pro. I will be sending Tuesday, as work has me running all over the state tomorrow. This has been an incredibly challenging swap. Of course, I made it challenging. Pushing myself to new heights.

Teaser photo:   

I also finished a private swap I am behind on, and two of three quilt squares that are due soon. Now on to the next thing. Can't stop crafting!

Ohboyohboyohboy! !

So here are my thoughts on free motion...  I use no foot because I feel like the foot gets in the way - (I can't see where I'm going.)  Also - I put the feed dogs down AND i put the presser foot all the way down - it helps give just the tiniest bit of stability so things don't run away from me.  Smiley  Tissue paper is a good idea if you're using light weight fabric but I almost always use canvas so there's no need.
  Most importantly...don't aim for perfection.  It should be loose and fun and "doodley".  Smiley  If you expect something architectural and precise you won't have any fun at all!!

I ran out of some paint colors I needed for the doll, but picked them up last night. Then had to spend the whole evening updating a website. Ugh. Not my favorite. Tonight I want to get another layer on the head....other visible parts look pretty good. Then on to the costume...my favorite part. He he he....it's looking pretty good right now.
EXCITING!!  Cheesy

I have a hard time dialing back the cute as well. Now, I like cute, but I strive to be edgy, cool and yes, creepy. Doesn't work. Didn't work when I was 18 either. Ahhh, but I can go for the awesome. That will do!

Cute, creepy, I'm not picky.  But I'm ALL about the awesome!!  Wink
