I spent all day beating my head against the same wall regarding what I want to make next. One idea after another was begun, developed and discarded. I played with some CiM Hades and dark ivory after reading Dragonjools' blog from yesterday and the beads that resulted from this are nice and looked pretty cool before I stowed them. The way I feel about them is the way I would feel playing scales on the piano. It's technical practice and should be done, but the goal is to relate it to something else later. Training muscle memory for the mind.
