For weeks recently I went off on this crazy tangent where I was trying to come up with my own cheese recipes and for that reason, and a few others, none of my cheeses were working out. Then I had a lightbulb moment and decided to follow a recipe and my next cheese came out just perfect. (Amazing!)
I have a tendency to do the same thing with craft ideas. I’ll see something somewhere, or just get an idea out of the blue, and then I’ll try to make up my own pattern. Sometime this actually works out, but sometimes not. Yesterday was one of those days when I struggled all day with some nutso idea I had and at the end of the day I was thinking, Suzanne, maybe you should try following a pattern sometime.
It involved corn husks, tea-stained muslin, and hand-sewn stars.
It was SO FREAKING CUTE.
Total failure. I’m not even going to tell you what I was trying to make.
I bet the puppy would like those hearts as chew toys. Yeah. That’s it. I WAS MAKING CHEW TOYS!
What a relief. I hate it when things don’t work out!
