I am thoroughly enjoying the Creative Strength Training explorations. It is wonderful to immerse in the exercises and reflections. As new material came in at the beginning of the month, I was finding the tendency to want to take it all on right away. However I remembered there is really no rush. I could slow down. The 10 month format is part of what drew me to this course, knowing I could dive deep.
I am drawn to hand stitching, inspired by the Liz Kettle stitch meditation video that I shared with you in the last post. Here are some of my stitch meditations:
The pieces are roughly 4" x 6". It is a workable size, allowing time to sketch an idea with stitch over a shorter time period. Some of these sketches may inspire a new direction in future. For now I stitch.
