Another week another wednesday. That means a day to look at what other hobbyists around the globe are up to via WOYWW.
Starting early today(tuesday). What a week. Last night MS Kitty suddenly went ballistic, biting her tail and legs, racing around as if she had been attacked by an unseen force. I wonder if Game of Thrones scared her. We watched it last night. The situation became more scary when Xochitl ran after her causing mayhem and so we had to put X in my studio while I calmned Ms Kitty.
As you see Ms Kitty is recovered and ready for a nap.
I finished my Documented life journal for week 21. The prompt was to List 10 songs that set our feet tappin'. Since i like so many and never remember names of songs or singers i went to dear Mr.Google who was able to provide decades of dance tunes, Tapping my feet remains an ability not lost whereas today's dancing is more a breathless shuffle. below is a page showing the list pinned to a background collage of USA postage stamp images of dancing. The page is a flap and opens out to the weekly calendar.
I cannot decided if i want to continue doing this calendar as I have not been very creative with it. I do a daily journal that is more writing but I am a little fed up with that as the group I do it with has so many rules. have to re think it.
On the back of the page are this week's PACs(pocket art cards). The challenge was to use a circle from the set in the kit. The PACs were playing cards where i had made the backgrounds so added the circles and glued down the paks. The middle on is attached with black thread. Gives it motion!
Journal 52 always has 2 prompts, this week unraveled and/ stitched. I had just finished reading a post about a British embroidery teacher and remembered a sampler made in a class. Amazingly I found it, so glued it into my journal. This sample was made at a class over 10 years ago with Australian artist Helen Dafter. SO happy it has a permanent home. It is silk ribbon embroidery. After carpal tunnel surgery my stitching was off and practice resulted in too much discomfort. Paper is a compromise...still create, not nearly as satisfying.
Desk tidy (enthusiasm lacking)
A "to keep or not to keep" moment at my
workspace. have to get ladders out to put books on top shelf. problem when you are short is adequate space require upward mobility.
have a great week.
