An end to incessant fussing
In some ways, I am relieved to be finally finished with this particular ensemble. It has been redesigned from scratch twice, and yet a vague, wordless dissatisfaction about it remains. I suppose this is one of those occasions where one looks at a creation long struggled with, and only sees all the other ways in which it could have turned out, but turns heel and abandons it in the woods to die a burgundy-coloured death anyway. I would have dyed it white (or perhaps Ered Luin blue) if I didn’t already make such liberal use of that colour; also, I needed an excuse to take pictures in the old but wonderfully unnerving barrows of Garth Agarwen.
