Moving On

I had my next punchneedle piece all laid out -- the design was drawn, the threads were ready and I was ready  -- or was I?  I kept feeling this sense of resistance even while I prepared for beginning a new project.

The next morning I woke up and said 'I'm not going to do it' - my fingers are itching to pick up a regular needle and thread and make a stitchery.  My mind is filled with images of collaged fabric, embroidery stitches, making order out of chaos (but not too much order mind you).

And so I've begun a completely new piece of work -- hope you'll join me in this new adventure, I think its going to be great fun!

"Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit." - e. e. cummings


  1. It looks like it will be quite an interesting project. Looks like a nest in progress?

  2. oh boy, can't wait!
    Following your muse...you GO!!

  3. Looks lovely already! Go with your gut instinct I say!

  4. Wow its looking very interesting cant wait to see the next instalment.

  5. Yay for you!!! It is so much fun to give ourselves a creative break sometimes, and follow a different direction. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  6. You have me totally wanting to try punchneedle! I was going around on etsy looking at some really great stuff,too...and little kits.
    Oh no---can I add in another hobby? :0)
    Have fun with your new project!

  7. Good for you - always a good idea to follow your whims with these things!

  8. I also see a nest, and its lovely, has great depth. I'm so happy you didn't fight the urge to branch off with this one. We all need changes, and the threads will still be there later. Katie made me laugh with "oh no can I add another hobby". The answer is yes! Can't wait to see what you create here, Penny!

  9. which ever project, i just LOVE your colors. waiting to see your results.
