I love this time of year, the trees are flaming up in glorious colors, pumpkins are piled up in front of the grocery stores and the air has gone all crisp and bright.
I wish I felt better so I could enjoy this time more. I'm feelig just a bit grumbly right now because I've got a bit of a cold and my head is all stufed up. Sigh...
I have been doing some creative things but not much in the way of drawing these past couple weeks.
I've been teaching myself Punch Needle Embriodery and I've made a couple Hallowen ornaments for a contest at Stitch Craft a really neat Knitting/Sewing/Embriodery store in Downtown Vancouver Washington. This is such a fun and easy craft I'm surprised that I hadn't ever tried it before. I have been sketching simple designs on muslin fabric and then using a punch needle tool loaded up with embroidery floss to punch loops through the fabric and make the design. You end up with your design on the finished side looking like a tiny patterend rug. It's amazing!
What do you think??
I hope you are having a great Autum and are getting a chance to do something creative!
