damn damn, double damn

GRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I don’t know why i keep *&^%ing up with the background for the largest Leighton work. I try things and they don’t work, so again today i will pick out stitches. It might be time to alternate with some new stuff as well, stuff that doesn’t involve domesticity 🙂

I was looking at these yesterday, a treasured watercolour from sweet Serena, and an old fabric journal page from 2006.

Still loving that moon thing that has been happening, so they will undoubtedly pop up here as well.

ice moon 5And the texture on this older sample gives me some ideas as well.

I *do* tend to obsess over possible multiples, but in the end, only a few will make the cut–that short attention span for a motif still crops up. Even so, looking at them this way prompts other uses, techniques, and stories.

I’ve subscribed to Seth Godin’s blog, and today quite resonated with me:

The focus that comes automatically, our instinctual or cultural choice, that focus isn’t the only one that’s available. Of course it’s difficult to change it, which is why so few people manage to do so. But there’s no work that pays off better in the long run.

Your story is your story. But you don’t have to keep reminding yourself of your story, not if it doesn’t help you change it or the work you’re doing.
