So. Open up that box, get that brush out...match the number on the paint pots to the number on the stamped board...and just let the stress flow out of your system.
Painting with paint. lol! I say that because I've often heard of Needlepunch Embroidery referred to as "painting with thread"....as well as Rug Hooking referred to as "painting with wool". So, while I was painting with paint... I thought, "How nice would this design look as a punch needle piece?" The colors are already sectioned out, so it would be easy to transfer to weaver's cloth and punch with thread. And, after all, I've taken quilt patterns and converted them to rug hooking patterns... as well as converted cross stitch patterns to needle punch patterns. Hmmm... I may try it with a different design. Some day.
How about you? What was your favorite childhood craft? Have you thought about giving it a try as an adult? Maybe put a fresh spin on an old idea?
Reading blogs is always enjoyable too... and especially fun with the beginning of a New Year! I've seen many lists of quilts to stitch and rugs to hook... soooooo much inspiration and positive energy!!!
Which brings me to my "word for the year"... well... actually, I picked two words....
(with a side of FRUGAL)
Yes. I do aspire to create more than I did last year. But, I also want to continue to maintain a realistic budget for it all. Use what I have before I even think about adding anything new! Of course, behaving 100% would be a tad bit boring... so, I did add ONE more "new"... but, we'll keep that a secret until it arrives... ;-)
Wishing everyone a healthy, happy, prosperous and creative 2018!!!
