Looking Forward 2012

Looking forward I am tempted to say I see trees, lots of trees but can’t seem it find the forest. I too had a look at Ruth’s link and thought this was a much better way to move forward. I was thinking of using release, as in her example because getting organised is one thing I am always saying. Instead I decided to pick Breath.

  • Breathe out slowly and let go of inhibitions and all the other things that hold me      back from moving ahead with my felt.
  • Take a deep breath and plunge ahead with ideas for new felt pieces.
  • Make breathing room by getting rid of stuff that is just in the way.
  • Say no, so I can catch my breath.

I am sure that if I practise my breathing I will be able to back up and see the whole forest.

I am looking forward to helping Ruth, Zed and Kaz develop out blog and Forum. Along with following along with the various challenges that come up on the Blog and Forum I want to make more complex resists to make more complicated and interesting hats, vessels and birdhouses. I want to explore nuno felt more, being more creative with combining silk or other fibres with different wools and I want to use some raw fleece to make a bag with long curls. I think all that should keep me busy.

Happy 2012 everyone

    Breathing is always a good thing 🙂 It is an excellent word and I hope that it helps you to do all the things you want to do this year. I look forward to seeing the complex resist hats and all your other work.

    Thanks Ruth, I too think breathing is very important part of life. It’s easy to forget how to beath properly sometimes.
