Waiting For Odysseus





 
While my Mojo is sleeping, I am working on finishing some projects I started a while back. I used a image from one of my sketches to create this embroidered fabric collage. There is a lot of hand stitching and applique, along with painted fabric and so on. Some flowers from crafting passionz scrapbooking swap group also found a home on this piece. Other flowers were from a thrift store find and I made some pink rolled roses to add. There's also a stick pin there from the same group. I'm not sure how I want to really finish this piece so I will leave it for now and think upon what it shall be.

There is no theme or idea of where I want to go with it, just finish is a main thought. There are also lots of shifting around of things, keeping what I really want, letting go of what I don't need...decluttering. A simplifying of creative space and mind. I'm not sure where I am going but I'll let you know once I get there.
