first day

shadows.  [light/dark]

[lack of space for stitching area and solitude/a solution.]
pre-stitching with pen and paper?
mentally stitching a cloth together.   not just a simple idea sketch, but doing as much as i can do before pulling out the cloth and thread.
i will try.

  1. sketching ideas has never worked for me but i continue to try putting my ideas down on paper. wishing you a creative new year.

    • yeah right now i am only able to use them to catch a idea before i forget about it. but i really desire to find a solution to my time problem. most of my time stitching is gazing into the cloth(s) thinking. if only i could just get right to it…

      and happy new year to you deanna! oh and thank you for coming over!

    i remember, “back in the day” when visualizing things was viewed
    as “new and woowoo”…reading something that talked about how
    the olympic athletes train in Russia. a HUGE percentage of the
    training time was spent Visualizing in comparison to the actual
    physical training.
    maybe like this, what you are thinking of doing here?
    i like the idea a lot and will be interested to hearing how it works
    for you….would enjoy hearing you talk about it as it goes.
    THIS ALL FEELS LIKE SOMEONE HAS
    OPENED THE WINDOW AND THROWN ASIDE THE CURTAIN!
    love,

    • oh yes… i remember a PBS special with alan alda on this subject. that’s right. i hadn’t thought of that. i used to do this when i was running track and playing basketball too. hmmm…
      it feels that way to me too… hard to explain how, but i can feel something underneath.
      i will add more posts as i go on. the nieces went back to school today, so… what did i do? sleep. hahahhahahahaha they’d been running me ragged on holiday vacation. so i just couldn’t resist the quiet and the blankets. haven’t gotten to putting :the contrary: together, but all the steps are still here. i will try tonight.

    i think it’s maybe learning to love the steps.
    just a step is a place gotten to?

    • yes i’ve noticed i don’t feel this lingering underlayer of frustration.
      i don’t know if i didn’t love that step, but there was something about it.
      i think a little bit of guilt
      that i should be doing something else.
      and in the BOOK i read about
      feast after famine
      this fear that there’s not enough time
      and i’m frittering it away…
