Opps! Went the Cactus

What a title, huh?

Well, here’s the backstory.  While in the midst of preparing for an exhibit this weekend, I was in the final stages of a piece.  I was sculpting my crocheted works into a cactus.  Yes, it was shaping up fine.

I was about to do the final adhering of the image when…daggone!…the work seemed to jump from my table and fall to the floor.  Now once it shifts, moves in anyway, I am unable to reproduce the same image again.   Thus, I have to begin from scratch.  Here’s that same crocheted piece now sculpted into a piece I now call “Simple Tree”.

Look very closely at the image and you will see it is the same twirls as the cactus.  It’s simply now ‘sculpted’ into a tree image. And, guess what?  I happened to like the tree imaging better.

What about you?
