It seems like the last few semesters in school, the last month of final projects have stressed me out to no end. It's been kind of routine for me to get a series of really annoying headaches that refuse to quit, all while I really need to get work done.
Tonight is one of those nights of course. I have a project due in Fibers next Wednesday which we were only given two weeks to conceptualize, plan, and execute. I really hate trying to be creative in a hurry - nothing makes it more uninspiring and of course that sets off the panic buttons. What's worse is that we're forced to use a technique that I'm ok with, but definitely don't enjoy when being forced to do it: pattern-making/sewing. I do definitely want to improve my skills, but not when I have a week to try and pull something off and my fabric refuses to cooperate with me!
Ok, I'll clarify. I somehow decided that it would be cool/neat/a smart idea to use several layers of netting as my fabric..........a fellow classmate successfully fused several layers of netting together for a small sample, but when I try to do it, I keep getting crap stuck together like the foil glued to the netting, or the netting not sticking at all.
I'm going to try sewing it together instead of fusing because I just about give up on that. If the sewing doesn't work out then I give up. I'm going to have to find some other fabric to use.
Sorry. Had to rant here. I'm obviously deeply frustrated and annoyed. I hope that my next post will be the flip side of the story where everything works out.
I really hate rush jobs.
