In addition to my own [lack of] resolution though, Stephanie asked us to watch a Ted talk on Zaria Forman: Drawings that show the beauty and fragility of Earth. I really enjoyed that. What kept coming back to me, though, as I considered the theme was the continuous project lists from last year, and the fact that I wanted to plan less this year. Not that I intended to sew less, just leave more space to sew on a whim. So as I started to sew, I was in a way, recreating that very intentional list of the past.
thinking of the Resolution prompt, my own lack of planning, glaciers (thanks to the Ted talk), scale, and my own journey. It was an eclectic mix of ideas, and I may just be the only one the sees the connections in the finished piece.
The one detail I will comment on is that I tried to leave more white space to represent 'free sewing' as I moved along, though I achieved an acceptable block size - 13" x 25" - before things got really blank. I did also refer to Helen/Archie the Wonder Dog's tutorial: "How to Add an Accurate Quarter Inch Strip", which actually worked really well to achieve even 1/8" strips. And as usual, Bee Sewcial took me somewhere worth going with intention and thoughtfulness. I'm glad I went.
