Yes it has been a long time since I posted. With some unexpected life happenings, it took some time for me to come back from the edge of an all consuming "I-really-don't-feel-up-to-it" syndrome. With the recent loss of a family member, I had been putting things on hold. Waiting to see what would happen next.
Last week a friend stopped by for a visit, and she reminded me that regardless of what may or may not happen, and wherever I might be, I would still want to create. She was right! I had worked myself into a "funk" of indecision and complacency! Well enough of that! I needed to get my hands on some fabric, some thread, some beads, some lace...anything that would get the juices flowing.
So let's get caught up. They are small steps, but here is what I have been up to since I last posted. Remember those dyed pieces of felt and thread? After some stitching this is the result.
In addition to creating a stitch book, we also had to create a sampling of different knots as a requirement for the class. So here is a look at how many different knots and knotted stitches I was able to come up with.
Till the next time, thanks for stopping by, and stay creative.
