Firstly … I fully intend to attend to my blog all year long … at least once a month ! I promise this … not just to share my work with you but to keep abreast with you.
Secondly … I intend to start a major, personal art project in 2019 … and I have begun !! … as of January 2, 2019. It is a huge job and may take a few years. It will be entirely hand-stitched and has a deadline of Sept. 03, 2022. This date has quite a significance for me. It will be our 50th wedding anniversary. The project is my wedding dress … to be completely embroidered and majorly representative of a marriage 😉 I invite your questions and would love a partner(s) in crime. I know you still have it tucked away somewhere ! But what do you do with it ?? Why not turn it into a piece of art ?? There will surely be an art show somewhere in the near future that would love to show it. I washed and dried mine … came out of the dryer beautifully ! I have been basting the lining to the dress every chance I get.
The third, but rather mundane, resolution that I have also made is to chuck things I do not use, will never use (or read) and start another major de-cluttering throughout my whole house (not just my studio) in preparation of moving from home-owner to senior renter. I will have to do most of this myself as hubby, although on board with it, still doesn’t have the heart for it … but he’s coming along … and he’d better hurry as moving day may be at the end of 2019.
So, there you have the nitty. The gritty will be all the hard work … and I am looking forward to the year ahead ! (pictures soon !)
