Needle Painting: bird
It is very time consuming, but not the actual stitching. It's getting all the colours organized and labeled correctly and setting them up so one does NOT get into a kerfuffle. I am enjoying exploring new ways of doing embroidery, and hope by the end of the year my doodle cloth has plenty of new stitches.
Reading: 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami and one review said if one is going to read his work this is NOT the book to start with. Too LATE, and I am hooked even after 5 pages.
I am setting up my dining room into a tea room and this little jug sitting on the welsh dresser always makes me smile.
I bought it from my favourite art gallery in town, IN A FRAME.
“Art is a gift. You can sell the souvenir, the canvas, the recording… but the idea itself is free, and the generosity is a critical part of making art.” Seth Godin
Found this above quote on Gwarlingo, which has an interesting article about the writer Lewis Hyde.
ps. I really agree with Seth's entry about don't expect applause in regards to the creative process.
