Another day, another procrastination


I did a bit more stitching on another padfolio yesterday - same fabric, same detailing, same thread. But I have something different in mind for this one, which explains the bevy of bookbinding and bookmaking texts brought home from the library. It appears I will do anything right now to avoid tackling the technical dilemma facing me with the Little Rogue piece.

Today I joined the group that meets at my church once a week. They are mostly painters, and happily haul & set up their tools and canvases. I, on the other hand, am not doing the sort of textile work conducive to packing up and hauling and setting up in this particular space at the moment. Not to mention that I am totally unmotivated to do so. And I am also unmotivated to work on any of my handwork there right now. However, my mind has been wandering back to drawing, and how I manage to convince myself I don't have time right now, so drawing is what I've been taking when I go. Today it was doodling, or as it is being marketed these days, zentangle. I can't believe there are books available on this. Well, maybe I do. I found myself running out of ideas for filling the spaces. The top one isn't bad but I totally gave up on the bottom one. Made me want to sneak a peak at a book...


This, by the way, is my 888th post, for what that's worth. Ok, it's worth something to the 8th person to comment on this post. I promise it won't be a zentangle. ;-)

Love your doodles, even if the second one is not finished. I'm being very good at procrastinating these days too...
