This is a re-post of my mantra for the New Year.
I decided to jump start one of my 2018 short term goals, which is to learn how to thread sketch.
A New Year calls for a mascot, so I attempted to thread sketch a bird.
This was my first attempt at thread sketching.
As you can see, more practice is a must.
I had seen tutorials demonstrating how to thread sketch on applique.
I thought this might be easier and a good starting point.
Meet Joy, my 2018 mascot.
Joy is far from finished.
I need more thread to add detail to the body.
My plan is add embellishments after I sketch some more.
Joy is far from perfect, but she will be a reminder of where I was when I started on my quest to learn how to thread sketch.
Hopefully, I will show growth in this artistic adventure.
Santa will be sending me some more thread.
He has been overly generous, but now seems a bit concerned.
I think he might shut down my Amazon account.
Now, for sure, my sewing room is closed.
Christmas luncheons and activities begin tomorrow.
Merry Christmas to all of my blogging friends.
Have a peaceful, joyful, and blessed holiday.
