First, though, I had to be foolish and try to create something free-hand. After so long, it was a mistake to jump back in and attempt an original project.
So I set it aside and pulled out one of my many books, choosing Quilled Flowers by Alli Bartkowski.
I needed something with good and complete instructions for a project I could sit and finish in a few short hours.
Cherry blossoms were perfect, and seasonal too, so I sat down and enjoyed making this little branch...
...which I actually could easily display in the studio when it was done! Ta-da! It felt great!
I love books!
