Stitching, sketching and snow shoeing

I’d planned to spend the afternoon in my sunny sewing studio. The problem is the sun and blue skies and perfect snow call to me and I had to go snow shoeing with my buddy. It’s pretty cold right now but once bundled up and in the woods it’s,  beautiful.

There’s art to be found everywhere.

A storm is forecasted for Thursday into Friday so I’ll have studio time to work on these little fun pieces.
I’m free motion stitching parts of my Gelli prints to use for the pockets in a small roll up sewing kit.

I also finished a mini sewing kit perfect for the purse. It’s about 2 1/2” by 3 1/4”.

Still room for a pocket and a piece of wool for needles.

All the while, I’m thinking about my next piece of fibre art. There a few landscapes that interest me. Also, I’ve had these rabbit pictures taken at the family cottage that I’ve been thinking of too. Not my usual subject, I decided to start with a sketch and watercolour to see how it goes. 

It needs more color and shading. I had to pick up my friend.

My resolve for the new year is to learn how to make videos in my studio. I’ve done a couple of short ones which I’ve uploaded to YouTube. Since I’d need many followers before I can have a link, I can’t share. If you wanted to look, try Holly’s studio sewing kits. I found it that way.
I’m waiting for a new computer which I’m hoping to use to directly upload my movies here, something I can’t do right now with this APP. 

I’m wishing you all a Happy New Year. Tell me about anything new you’re hoping to try this year if you’d like.

I enjoyed reading your profile...we have similar interests. Your hare is coming along beautifully and I admire you snowshoeing. A great way to use winter positively. I've been following the weather and track of that storm and NB seems like it might get quite a lot of snow so keep those snowshoes handy! Meanwhile good luck in all your creative ventures in 2018.
