Hey there! It's the second installment of Things We Like.
1. This week I like spotting signs of spring like the crocus blooming my my yard and most especially, getting a load of rotted horse manure spread on my garden.
This manure was delivered last week and the worms are doing their happy work as I wait a bit longer until planting time.
2. Besides sharing news of new patterns or projects, I don't talk much here about my business or creative goals. But I hope to begin sharing more about the larger projects I am working on. I am I am registered for Tara Gentile's Art of Action class which begins this week, and I look forward to using the class to make measurable strides in the plans I am scheming about. Tara's writing and work has been very helpful to me as I think about how to approach creativity and business in an innovative way. Tara is a woman who is making big things happen, I feel lucky to be a part of the class. She posted a free "You Are Allowed" print-out last week and I immediately printed it out and pasted it into my sketchbook. My favorite line of the print-out is- "You are alllowed to stop researching and start experimenting," a great reminder for me, an inveterate researcher!
It is so fun and surreal to see people use a pattern I have written to make something so lovely. Alice added little bow ties instead of the embroidery and I really like how colorful and modern they are, perfect! There are a few more really lovely Nesting Doll projects on the Ravelry project page, it's great to see the different versions.
