I've been having a tough time getting back to creating in the studio, I'm doing my usual stitching but I'm not feeling the usual enthusiasm. Maybe I need a longer break, or I just haven't recovered from the break I took. At any rate this is what I've done this week.
2020 Weekly leaf, the Burr Oak Series week 7 & 8 - all caught up.
week 7, Solarfast on cotton
Week 8, Solarfast on vintage silk taffeta
SAQA's next 100 days, days 14-20
I've finished the stitching on the last 20" sq. napkin and I must say it's not my favorite.
But it is done.
Normally I would have another daily stitching project ready to start, but I don't and right now I don't even have any half formed ideas floating around, so I'll be taking a break for at least a few days.
I'm back home after spending two wonderful weeks in Thailand. A few of the highlights were an indigo dying class, a Thai cooking class(yum), a day playing with elephants,
lots of temples,
lots of Buddha's,
fresh food markets,
beach time on an island,
time with my daughter and granddaughter, and much more. It's taken me a few days to recover from jet lag after our 30 hour journey home which included a quick tour of Seoul, Korea during a 12 hour layover.
Stitching was minimal on this trip.
Week #5 and #6 , Burr Oak leaf series
SAQA Next 100 Days, days 1-13
I'm slowly getting back into the studio and my normal life, but I'm not in a rush to do so. I think I may have needed this break.
