After yesterday’s success, I decided to play around with a little more embroidery today. This is pure doodle, like the kind of things I used to sketch in the margins of my note paper in university, or the things I absentmindedly draw when I am talking on the phone for awhile. It’s nothing amazing, but it was fun, and I am enjoying becoming more comfortable with stitching this way.
I think one of the important things about this challenge is to remember that sometimes the process if making art is more important than what is produced. Sometimes it is refreshing to allow yourself the luxury of creating something just for the sake of creating, and being gentle with yourself when it doesn’t turn out like you had imagined.
It is OK to not create a masterpiece every time. It is OK just to play, and to have fun, and to let your creativity have free rein.
Long live the doodle!
