... it's as if in the back of my mind cogs are working away on something else. Or perhaps it is just as Margaret Cooter says: ideas come when the hands are busy. I have been stitching away at the third sea-inspired work this week.
Nearly finished, I have been vaguely wondering what I should go onto next, ... and then while making adjustments to Siren song, inklings of this came along,
which of course I pursued. It's not quite there yet, but I like the beginning. Sometimes I have to let ideas simmer a bit longer, and sometimes they need to be tried before they slip away again into the ether.
By the way, I was bothered with the position of the hands after I'd mirrored Siren song, and am much happier with her back facing the way she was originally.
