Leave no tender words unsaid

This has been sitting for weeks now, unfinished. Reached a point where I ran out of whatever it is that keeps me interested and working on a project. When I reach that point, it is time to walk away, then return later to see if I want to finish the project. I over think projects and then hit a wall. If I work quickly without over thinking, things always turn out better in the long run.I am not sure what I am going to do with her. I want to do several others and wrap them up in some kind of a book.

I love this piece, but it remains unfinished. I have not glued everything down. Moving things around will continue until I feel it is right. I like it much better today than I did weeks ago. Perhaps that is why I end up so attached to my pieces. I have put so much of me into their creation.
Handwork along the bottom. Love the metal pieces and wire that are the opposite to the softness of the lace -- rust and lace. I like that.

I did make changes. Will share those with you another time. It is a work in progress.

This is another fabulous piece Judy! I know what you mean about hitting that wall and walking away..I do that too and tend to overthink way too often. The time and effort you put into your work really does set it apart from everyone elses....can't wait to see your next creation!

I love the combination and contrast too, Judy. Of course I love, love, love, the ruffling at the bottom with the buttons!

Judy
what a fantastic piece you have created again...what I wouldn't give to spend an afternoon watching you assemble your gorgeous collages. I especially love the vintage jewelry at the top! :)

Hi Judy! Now that I'm back from my cruise, I really want to get back to the workshops with KC. However, I am STILL on a cruise "high"! I'm telling you, I had the time of my LIFE. I will definitely be taking other trips with T!m and company in the future. Not ONE detail was over-looked on that cruise. And the "freebies"?! OMG, it was over the top!
