When I finish stitching the body,
I suppose I'll have to get around
to making a new head.
I have three more bodies that I made for dolls (all much smaller) that somehow didn't work out. Maybe I'll just embroider bodies until the urge to move forward occurs. More blank canvases to fill.
I used a disappearing ink pen for the spirals, but the rest is simply improv--calming, soothing, an escape from problems I can't solve. Requiring no planning or thinking. Just filling the next empty space.
One problem that I can solve and worked on yesterday is culling and de-cluttering. So many half-finished projects that have been shunted aside and that I know will never go anywhere, along with all kinds of "stuff" that I thought might come in handy some day. Filled a trash bag and dumped them. Still a long way to go, but a start.
Working myself into the Christmas mood with all of the blog posts I've been seeing lately. Not there yet, but I can feel the need for a snowman or two beginning to take hold, and I can tell there is a Pinterest marathon coming on....
