So I think we can agree, maybe my time management skills are not the best? I tend to get things that must be done (schoolwork, showing up to work work) done, but sometimes I end up accidentally cutting out the things I just want to do which is not good! Anyway, I finally bought a frame for this little embroidery doodle (embroidery doodle?) but then when I was cleaning the frame, I cut myself on the glass & ended up bleeding off & on for about three days so I figured maybe I ought to just not work on that project for a bit & waited quite a while before trimming my embroidery & stuffing it in the frame!
I think I should like my next embroidery project to be a bit bigger! Not necessarily in size, but maybe in complexity at least. I hope to have lots of available craft time this summer!

Doodling & playing with paint is fun which is why I recommend keeping a journal in which to do these things. A place to play, to not worry about things looking nice or interesting or even remotely creative, but to just have fun! I no longer have access to a scanner 😦 so I am having to take pictures of these pages which doesn’t look quite as nice, but whatever.

Hello, I am not dead, but I have had this blog on autopilot for abit! I have moved locations though & have been pretty busy with packing & moving & unpacking. Anyway, I made it, all is well, it’s a really big change, but I’ll get to that some other time. Here is something I finished before leaving home.
Playing around with paint again, here are two girls who know how to keep secrets, something I’ve never been able to manage. More detailed pictures at their page!

A long long long time ago, I was given this little embroidery sampler. Basically, the owner felt they would never complete it (or start actually) & decided that I probably would. For various reasons, it took me ages to finish this thing! It was my embroidering bane of existence for ages! Anyone I might have spoken with in the past has probably heard me mumbling on about this. Kind of large compared to anything else I’ve embroidered & quite detailed! In fact, this was what really made me want to start creating my own designs to embroider, I would never draw anything with this much detail! At any rate, I am very happy to have finished this little thing but am now wondering what I ought to do with the piece now.

So I am still working on that dress but I can never resist starting another project before actually finishing one. Not too long ago, I made this painting. It basically is along the same theme as that ceramics piece I posted the other day, just in a different medium. I suppose those kinds of ideas have just been bouncing around in my head lately.
& I just really like this picture. I was taking a snapshot of the painting, but this little puppy was like, “oh wait, is something getting more attention than I am? That can’t be right, let me just stick my head in here.”
