perspective


It's been a little while between posts, lots of re-thinking of things, sorting, taking time out, planning, being inspired, a little research, all at a very, very slow pace. There's new plans ahead for 2010 but not the sort of plans that are going to drain me, more the sort of plans that have always been floating around in my head but have never really blossomed.

Of course there will still be this sort of stitching


but maybe with more of this sort of stitching


I'm thinking a dash of one-off


and a little less repition


That means more interesting stuff for you to look at and less markets - but when the markets do happen they'll be better than ever and a little more special.

Happy to come along for the ride?

It's always nice to take some time to re-think and re-evaluate. Can't wait to see what creations 2010 will bring. Good luck!

No thanks. I'm not coming along for any rides with you that don't involve piles and piles of birds, especially the green ones, they're my favourites!

;)

Can't wait to see what you've got in store for this year, it'll be superfly!!!

your embroidery is gorgeous!

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

Well, like Sam, I'm also hoping that the birds don't go totally - I have to get another as my last ended up going to my grandma who just loved it!

But yes, I hear you. Less repetition is great. I've also being doing a re-think about what work I'll be doing this year, trying to bring in less stress. Can't wait to see what your crafting adventures come to! They will be fabulous no matter what I'm sure!
