Time flies ever faster these days. Small screens have overtaken larger ones, Instagram has become addictive and I feel it is time for a smartphone detox. Instagram was an easy way to post pics of things I had been painting and doodling, but I am going to try to not look at it or use it as much. I feel manipulated to keep checking in to that small bright colourful screen which holds so much promise but is in reality such a time waster. It feels as though I have become more anxious, more doubtful, less confident, more judgmental and less connected surprisingly.
I am setting a timer for myself on that little hand held access point to the whole wide world....I have books to read, ideas to paint, embroideries to embroider and swims to swim. So I am going to try and visit back here more regularly and post pics of the things I am doing.
My little shop at bigcartel is still open for business. Thank you to everyone who has been purchasing my patterns. 'She Stood in the Storm' is still a favourite!
Hope to see you back here soon....
Just finished this one today. Been embroidering it for a long long time!
I did this little pattern with a group of seniors last year and they all enjoyed the stitching and did such a good job
I kept a journal last year and did some tiny embroideries which I glued in randomly through the pages
A few more stitches added
