Still busy and getting nowhere

I don't think the cat make-do would approve.
Geez... I just can't seem to get anywhere with my projects right now. The rabbit is still unfinished because I have become obsessed with making his hat and, maybe, some shoes. Poor thing doesn't even have a body or feet, but the hat & shoes seem sooo important!

The picture above is of a cat make-do that I created last year for a swap. I made it out of a small vintage strainer, various wire bits & thingys, a couple of buttons that I painted as eyes, a vintage rabies tag and ribbons. This came together rather quickly and was so much fun.

Why is the rabbit proving to be so difficult to work on?! Maybe a glass of wine will help.

I loved that cat you did with the vintage strainer :)

I hope you get the rabbit figured out, I just love your art!

Karen, I know when you get it figured out it will be great! I remember the strainer too and it was such a surprise. You are so clever!

You're doing the right thing, just flow with it. Sometimes we need a little recharge to let go of that black hole. The strainer cat is just too it!!! Your bunny will come around, believe me. I have a Styrofoam brick with lots of heads on skewers just waiting to get their groove on. I keep telling them, I can only do one at a time, so be patient!!! Yes, I talk to my doll heads!!

Hey Karen! I love the cat, it is so cute!! Good luck on the rabbit! I know how that is, I have three projects in front of me now that I can't decide what to do to them next.

I remember that cat. I thought he was so clever. You will get that ol' bunny figured out. I find myself doing the same thing in my studio.
