I made beads and canes and all the usual stuff this week, really I did. Then I got sidetracked by an on again off again project: making a dragon ornament. For the fall, I make birds and sheep and cats but one of the first I tried (and failed) at was a dragon.
It’s not that I can’t whip up a dragon. I can. I can do a Christi style dragon. I can make a fairly complex dragon. It’s that I couldn’t a) get it to work on a round ball, b) be Elaine style and c) not take 8 hours. So I toodled along on and off, including this week, and suddenly it worked.
Go figure. Now I want to make a pile of ’em. Ornaments don’t only need to happen at Christmas right?
