I'm a multiple-project-at-one-time kind of person. So as 2009 closes, I see 1/3 of a floral cross stitch design in one embroidery frame, maybe 1/5 of a freehand embroidery project in my blue plastic hoop, eight designs and plans in my sketchbook, and a blank swatch of cloth in my largest scroll frame awaiting whatever inspiration I can derive from this cool tome I found in a used bookstore in Idaho last month: Erica Wilson's Embroidery Book.
And dare I mention my lovely fabric remnants collection peering down at me from the shelf above my desk? I can sense the longing of the scraps to manifest themselves as plushies, pillows, and patchwork skirts. Well, technically, nothing in my craft zone is ever going to materialize into a finished product of its own accord. But that's what the new year is for, right? I welcome the next twelve wide-open months, teeming as they are with creative possibilities.
Here's to a fabulous 2010!
