The Mother Ship has called in her 3rd baby UFO.
This last project's inspiration came from another CB2 catalog.
I was flipping through the pages and stumbled across
a sideboard that was dark and interesting.
Here's the worst possible photo of it in my sketchbook.
It has different panels on it with unruly zig zags of gold.
I thought this could provide an interesting idea for a
Four In Art
project I was working on.
I had some pre-cut stips of fabric already waiting for me
to experiment with.
I thought it would be interesting to have each panel
be 1/2 the width of the previous panel.
The first panel as 4 inches wide, the 2nd was 2 inches wide,
the 3rd was 1 inch wide and the 4th was 1/2 inch wide.
Along with that I started with 9 zig zags on the left panel.
I planned that in each successive panel I would double the amount of zig zags.
That meant 9, 18, 36, & 72 zig zags in the first four panels from left to right.
Things were going fine until I had to squeeze
72 zig zags into a panel that was 1/2 inch wide!!!
Who's idea was this anyways?!?!
WHY WAS I DOING THIS?
The logical left side of my brain FINALLY showed up and said,
"Just make that dang experiment into a hot pad and be
DONE WITH IT!"
