Today (Friday), I decided that I needed a break from work…..after all it is past “Tax Day”, so I planned to hit my studio around Noon. The plan was to work on the Camel thread painting, but I just couldn’t motivate myself in there to work.
I finally realized why….I was scared to work on it because I was afraid that I would mess it up!!!! I was reminded of a post that I had read from Leah Day where she was talking about this exact thing, and her comment was that “it was only a fat quarter of fabric”, so why worry about it. I realized that the same thing applied to me, so with that in mind, I headed AWAY from my desk and TOWARD the machine.
I decided that I would give myself one hour and then re-evaluate. At the end of the hour, I LOVED what I was doing and definitely wanted to keep on going.
Here are some photos of the progress…..
When you last saw it, it looked like this……
I then added some crossed lines…….
