Hand stitching is very accommodating to my lifestyle since it doesn’t require many props. I can sit on the couch with a small piece of fabric, and work while my kids play on the floor. No machines. No mess.
But today, I took a break from my usual hoop art obsession of cross stitching and hand-embroidering. As fate would have it, all naps would align and I could venture into the untidy world of painting. I had enough time to sketch a design on a wood plaque and get most of it painted using acrylics before the baby monitor started blasting. The rest, I finished in 60 second increments throughout the day. Although not my best work, since it’s been a while since my high school painting class, definitely something to brighten up my son’s bookshelf!
