I just cannot shake this cold. It's now in my chest, making everything tight and leading to lots of throat-clearing and coughing, and I'm exhausted. Have felt crappy all day, so did not get to work on the rug for very long.
--OK: OFFICIAL END OF THAT WHINE! Now, onward--
The rug is still very much in the experimentation stage. You may not be able to tell from the picture below, but one experiment is that I'm blending two different reds, one on the orange-red end of the spectrum and the other on the blue-red end. They don't normally go together but I am trying to get the to work together here. And then there are other issues. Here it is, as of today. Expect changes!
As I commented to a friend: I dunno...I just don't know.... Production will now slow down some as I focus on the upcoming Zentangle® class later this week.
Comments and opinions always welcome.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
No immediate group classes scheduled (I'm always open to hearing about a good venue in Western Massachusetts. I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.
Come and amaze yourself!
