I’ve been pretty quiet on the blog and Facebook front lately. Sometimes the body and mind just need a little down time. I picked up an extra shift at work last week and, for whatever reason, my creative flow has been thrown off. Perhaps the colder weather and allergies had something to do with it… Or maybe a little rest and relaxation is what the doctor ordered.
Either way, it was nice to have a few days of curling up in bed with my February book or snuggled up on the couch watching a movie. I find day dreaming always useful too. Daydreaming of new projects, taking a trip, falling in love… the stuff that the best dreams are made of.
While falling in love hasn’t actually come true yet and my next trip is in the works (not until April though), new projects are the easiest to breathe life into. Embroidery is the most natural way for me to slip back into my creative rhythm as well. I’ve started another set of dinner napkins: peas in a pod. Simple, adorable, and a nice little item to check off my project list.
As part of my day dreaming project list, I have had a little bit of an itch to get back into fine art. I had a day dream of having an art showing at a gallery space or coffee shop. I know that embroidering vegetables on napkins is a long way off, but it is just one more thing to work towards.
For now, I will keep stitching….
