But I believe that I will be ready, that is, as long as I really get my butt in gear and get work done this coming week. I think that I have done enough groundwork, that the rest *should* be smooth - albeit hard - sailing.
It recently dawned on me that I was not super excited about doing this fabric piece anymore, in my head the idea had begun to evolve already, and I kept trying to force my changing ideas onto the fabric. But I was asking too much of the work, there was already so much information in the material that I couldn't really get it to say anything I wanted it too. So I'm taking the last idea that I wanted to do to the fabric and letting that stand on it's own.
I had thought in the last few days of working on the stitches, that it would be nice to perhaps add another material, something to make the fabric even more sculptural. I had also been having issues using motor oil. Not only was it physically and chemically incapable of doing what I wanted, it was/and still is a hazard. You know, spontaneous combustion and all. So I thought, what if I put the motor oil in a small bottle and then attached the bottle to the fabric. Well, one thing leads to another, as usual, and I realized that everything that I wanted to say could be said just with the small bottles of material. So that is where I'm at, I ordered my vessels and hopefully will be getting them in this week. *fingers crossed*
Otherwise, I am just working away I suppose. I'm waiting a lot right now, waiting for vessels, waiting for plaster...but like I said, as long as I can get in gear and hit the ground running when I finally get the materials. I'm good. Anxious, of course. But good.
