~ Exercize ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk ~

cold cold cold cold!
trying my best to keep warm ~ 
copious amounts of tea keeping me warm today.

I titled this posting 'exercise' because I am doing just that,
using creative muscles I haven't used in a while...

the 1 Year of Stitches 2017 project is an exercise for me in focus and diligence,
one that keeps me using my hands for stitching
 but in different ways from my usual cross stitch or punch needle ~
am enjoying this immensely.

{today is day 10 ~ I added the small black scissors}




... another exercise is one that hearkens me back to my painting roots ~
watercolors to be exact; 
there is just something healing about dipping a brush in water and pigment
and letting the brush wash color onto the paper... 




I'm working on new prints and note cards in-between stitching....

 


stay warm my friends, 
and remember to make room in your day for a little creativity. 

Blessings from the Farm ~
 Lori

We started the day with freezing rain, but the temp has risen so it's just rain washing away the ice :)
I did find time to pull a few loops.
Happy stitching.
Hugs :)
