|Baba Brinkman performing "Performance, Feedback, Revision"|
It made me feel better to think that not only am I not the only artist whose craft is a constant work in progress, but that maybe that's actually a wholly desirable trait. I know these things, but I tend to spend so much time with revision, that sometimes it feels like that's the only thing I ever do. Especially in my written work; I'm constantly looking for better ways to describe, illustrate or photograph key ideas or techniques. When is enough enough?

Once I have a finished-looking product (see I don't say it's actually finished!) it will be time to seek more feedback by posting it for sale. My hope is to have version two done by the end of this week. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Oh, and at the Seedbeader's meeting I discovered that many people didn't know why I called it a corset bead - it's because I stitch the middle band off of the base bead, then lace it on, just like you'd cinch a lady into her corset. So much easier than trying to stitch on the base bead itself.
