New year, new bullet journal in hand, I’ve been hard at work in the studio the past week. Admittedly, not doing anything particularly new, but I have spent many hours at the sewing machine nevertheless!
I’ve been putting the finishing touches to my latest course – Winter Landscapes – by adding a bonus section, showing how to use the same technique to create landscapes in all seasons (for our antipodean friends!) and what to do with the leftovers.
I’m very pleased with the results for the scraps, but a bit uncertain about one of the seasonal landscapes. There’s always room for me to learn something new, and I did just that by repeating the course three more times within one week!
Next week I’m going to be delving back into the Find Your Joy painting course, to redo the exercises after a few months’ break from concentrated painting. Until then, I’ve been trying to build a tiny stitch habit – grabbing anything, and something else, then stitching part A to part B – sketching, or doodling, if you like. Just something to say “I have stitched today”. It’s not necessarily going to be anything, other than trying to cultivate a different approach to my usual deadline-driven erraticism – a step towards becoming more diligent with my practice.
There. I said it – the P word!
