Sometimes I find it so frustrating to be someone who likes to have only one or two things on the the go at any one time. Because when I have finished a project, it can be so difficult to decide what to do next! There is only project to start, so it had better be good, my mind tells me.
I am doing the Take It Further challenge each month, but I need something to do when my challenge piece is finished each month. Right now, drawn thread work is exciting me., maybe with some pulled fabric in there as well. But so is more needlepoint. And then there is the crewel work I have always wanted to try.
And I want to design it myself – but what design? I love the flowing, sinuous, sensuous curves of art nouveau. OK, but do I want an abstract pattern, or one more based on the art nouveau stained glass designs that I originally thought about?
Oh, and I have been wanting to do something just pretty and girly, with beads and such like.
And getting back to whiteowrk, I have long fancied doing a sampler with all sorts of white work panels on it – hardanger, naversom, ukranian, drawn thread, mountmellick, casaguidi, schwalm etc
At this rate I am going to spend all my leisure time surfing around the internet looking for something that will scream “that’s what i want to do”.
Decision, decisions, decisions!
