Challenges

I was scrolling through Instagram recently and noticed several people taking part in different time sensitive or daily challenges. Back in November 2020 I challenged myself, and anyone interested in joining me, to Needlevember. Each day in November I/we would share something we stitched. I enjoyed the stitching but having something to show every day felt like pressure rather than pleasure. I know challenges are more fun when more people share their pieces too, but I went solo.

I’ve enjoyed creating challenge projects for Visions Art Museum Stir Crazy member challenge, I especially like that there’s no time frame for getting any of them finished. A few other artists have created project too. The idea of these projects, during the pandemic, was to find and use materials and objects you may already have around the house. VAM asked me to come up with another project for May.

The May project is mixed media but doesn’t include stitching, though I do show how I made one simple white fabric flower; these same flowers I used in my Unmaking the Soul piece…

Unmasking the Soul detail of the fabric flowers that have been colored with Neocolor ll wax pastels.

Here is the May Spring Wreaths project.

If you know anyone who may like to try a project like these Spring Wreaths, I hope you’ll share this post or the video. Thanks!

Christmas Past

Ages ago I made this door decoration and used it for years. I’m sorry I don’t have a better photo but it was long before digital cameras. I remember it being fun to make and I loved that it was different from the usual round wreath. Just a tree branch, a couple large sleigh bells, ribbon, tiny pine cones, and little decor flower bits!

I like that celebrating Winter Solstice is more inclusive and for the past couple years this has been our wreath. What, if anything, is on your front door and I wonder if you have a decoration on your door all year round? I like that idea!
