I am always working on at least 2 designs simultaneously. I need to go back and forth to keep my mind fresh and in addition to new needlepoint designs, I'm also usually beading or wire-working something as well. I don't think it's short attention span, I think it's just too much in my head that wants to get out through my hands and fingers.
Anyway... here are a few things I'm working on -
|A new sampler on 40 count silk gauze|
|New colorways for one of my ANG Chicago seminar classes|
|A new design I painted on congress cloth inspired by a piece of Japanese handmade paper|
I don't stitch during the day. That's when I do charting, writing, sending orders, etc. I stitch in the evenings, starting around 8-9:00 and go for a few hours. Sometimes if I'm really tired I will find myself dozing off, needle in hand and on special occasions I will even find a few strange stitches on the canvas that must have been done while I was semi asleep/awake. How strange is that!
