Some things creep up on you when you're not looking.
Like this little dress.
I cut out the shape and forgot about it. When I saw it again, I didn't like the shape so out came the scissors. My head told me to draw the outline first, but the other voice said just get on with it, snip snip. So I did.
A couple of days later, I stitched the outline to the background, and the rest came in fits and starts. Try this, discard that, the phone rings or you have to go out, and it gets forgotten again. Until you sit down to relax and your eye hits the dress and another idea pops into your head, and so it goes until it's finished.
Simplicity is the removal of the useless and the unnecessary--source unknown
