A bit of free motion play

I'm presently sitting out on my sunny deck amidst my seedlings, taking a break and having tea. I'm smelling (still amazed to have smell) the grass and the few flowers and leaves that have bloomed. I have to remember that it is unseasonably warm today and it will still be a couple of weeks before they can be planted. However, I did put some cold crop seeds in the raised bed: radishes, spinach, and kale.

After my doctor's appointment this morning, I went to the pool for some gentle exercise, sauna and whirlpool. I'm hoping it will help me on my drive tomorrow.

I feel unsatisfied if I can't have a little creative playtime, so I squeezed in a bit of free motion with black thread on the painted canvas that I've been working on. I'm making some bookmarks.

Darned if I can't get the photos I cropped to upload. I'll show more another day. You wouldn't be able to see anyway that I added some foiling glue which needs to dry before I add some foil accents.

I hope you're enjoying your week and squeezing in a few minutes of creative play, whatever it be.

I'm currently in love with using black thread to make art, so now I am noticing it everywhere. Yours is a different take, yet again. Amazing how much punch the threadwork adds!

Love the pretty bookmarks, Holly. I love your bedding plants. I planted this past weekend (in Winnipeg) and am glad to have my patio space back!

I'm looking forward to seeing more of your threadwork!

Loving the colours in your work and the black thread helps them shine.
