Name and Shame

 My workroom this morning at 8.30am. I think I've finally spread my attention too far.


So did I start finishing off.......

As I was stripping the inspiration board (always a prelude to clearing up) I just had a notion to see what my samples would look like together, I machined them onto some batting with a simple wavy grid and laid some threads over in a further grid to couch down.
And now I have another piece of work on the go!

I've just remembered, I have a book that has been started for the John Clare exhibit, four sketchbooks I'm working into and a huge canvas to fill with a mosaic of tiny painted squares that I have been preparing for a few weeks. 
I've also remembered that none of it really matters, I'm not going to lose my job over it, the world is not going to come to an end if I take my time to get through these UFO's, it's just what I do to fill my days in the most pleasurable way I know.

  2. Always nice to be able have a choice of what to work on at any one time........makes perfect sense to me...!
