Project Outlines and Updates

JapaneseSilkFlowers Kanzashi
So we had to postpone pictures.
Frankly, finishing as much work as needed to be done was not going to happen.  And I had an axiety attack.  So nothing was completed and I had to cancel last minute. 
Which actually worked out well for my photographer too so it's still ok. 

I was able to pick up this beauty from JapaneseSilkFlowers on Etsy and DevianART.  They are closing shop after 3 years and I am very sorry to see them go.  You can tell why, their work is fantastic. They did everything completely 100% traditional.  And were very accomplished.
I am going to use this piece not only to study how they made it to make a better one from chirimen, but also to use in the up coming photoshoot I will get to eventually.

I made it to 90 pine needles! It was a long hard run, but the worst is over.  Next I have to start assembling my needles onto a stem, and thread wrap them into place.  I am nervous, but I know it is silly.  It is only because I have never made a piece like this before.  I have enough conifdence now I know when I can and can't accomplish something, instead of believing can't all the time

I have a ton of projects in the works.  More fabric headbands to be made, for my shop and my daughter's shop.  I have another round of tie dye to accomplish, plus the last bouquet kanzashi I was making and never finished, AND the kanzashi I need to make for TZArtisan. I have more craft books and sewing books than will fit on my shelves and I am in a good place with that.  Don't even get me started that I was reminded that I need to start building up stock for the christmas season.

I also have a strange personal project, finding my son an autism service dog.  I dont know how much fundraising that is going to entail, but it will most likely be substantial.  I am certainly going to be having a clearance sale dedicated to that when I have some legitimate numbers for reference.  And a garage sale, and I have to sell my house. And I haven't exactly been in the best health.
