new ladies, new mess
I've just finished a batch of new Laini's Ladies designs -- here are the handmade samples that will be sent to the factory for bead-matching and such.
All in a big messy jumble on my ribbon- and bead-strewn desk:
Saturday afternoon I had the cutting-out of the ladies to do, so I settled down on the couch with my scissors and watched a shark show on Discovery Channel (do not, I repeat, do NOT go swimming in Recife, Brazil) and then, The Man from Snowy River, which I had not seen in many years. There are certain kinds of corny movies I like in spite of myself: horse movies, dance movies, and sports movies. Anyway, sitting there cutting out ladies reminded me of how many I used to cut. Hundreds! Crazy! But no longer. Now nice tidy machines do it, except for these first few of each batch.
Thank you for your feedback on the cat design. Those of you who thought it was just too weird, the manufacturer agreed with you. Trouble with me is, I like weird things, so I'm not a good judge. It doesn't really seem so weird to me to have a cat head on a lady's body. What's the trouble? Ah, but I am outnumbered by you rational types. Thanks for the feedback! You will not be seeing that cat in a store near you. (But Jennifer Fox, I made one just for you!)
