Well of course she just never trusts herself. I messed around with different patterns, tried to make my own. Really tried to simplify the shape. (This shape is good for owls too!) But couldn't get the tiny little puckers to not appear. Mr. Pearl and Pebble, inspite of not being crazy about stuffed stuff, seemed to think the puckers were normal. I deemed the whole thing silly and moved on to other things. They have been sitting in the closet for over a year now. When the construction end of it didn't pan out, I thought, well hey at least you have some fodder for an illustration. OK. So I did that.
Of course as I'm doing it - I love it and of course then I have to run out and buy acrylic inks and what not. AFTER IT'S DONE it's another story. "Oh it's just silly." (I can't figure out why I do this?) So I looked at it again today and it's really kind of fun. I don't know. Do you think like this? I can't figure myself out sometimes. It must have something to do with my self diagnosed ADD. My solution seems to be to buy more beads.
