New Needlework Mindset Yieldings

Glad to report that changing my perspective in regards to my needlework has yielded quick results. Indeed!
Above is a small design a whipped up the other night from one of the Japanese embroidery books in my stash (which shows a bit on the background). The design is by Hiroko Ishii. Below is a super cute skunk from the same book, but by a different artist. Do you remember Pepe Le Pew? I think he will approve. ;-)
Below is my completed bee square on my ongoing future lap-quilt.
I tell you... definitely rolling with my needle. 

Now trying to decided which of these birds below will make it to the next square on the quilt. Leaning towards the left and middle envelopes.... most likely a ducky. Which one would you pick?
I have a ton of office work to do this week, so not sure if there will be any other projects completed in the next few days, but I'm glad the needlework rut is over.   
Enjoy your midweek!

Doings


Just coming out of a crafty rut. Slowly going back to working on my embroidery projects... old or new. 
Something that I realized about myself is, that putting restrictions on my creativity dampens my enthusiasm for needlework. From now on I'll work on whatever I want to work, whenever the desire strikes... as long as it doesn't take away time from the most important responsibilities and duties in my life.
Wow, it feels so liberating already ;-)!
Until later!
