Moving on!

Hey there, Happy Friday πŸ™‚ Hope you had a good week πŸ™‚

This week I have been working on my previously mentioned design for my first ever shawl / poncho / wrap design. You can read all about it here. I’ll wait for you to read itΒ  …. Are you back? Super πŸ™‚ So where was I? Ah yes, good news!!! Progress has been made! At the beginning of the week I worked through a couple more failed attempts, but every time some issue was resolved. Then I went back to the drawing board and tweaked my initial design, and voila, so far so good!

The process this week has taught me another valuable lesson; creative work, well any work really, well anything really, let’s say everything, and everyone…am….everything and everyone needs to be given the room to change and grow and evolve naturally. I was so focused on the initial picture I had in my head that I was driving myself mad trying to make it work. It didn’t work. As soon as I accepted that and thought, ok this isn’t exactly what I wanted it to look like, but let’s go with it and see where it takes me, the whole process opened up and took off. And you know what? It is actually a lot better looking than my original design πŸ™‚ Go figure! So note to self, try not to be so rigid in your work. As the saying goes, let go and let flow!

So that’s been my week. How’s yours been? Looking forward to the weekend? Hope you have a good one and I will talk to you on Monday πŸ™‚

P.S. Sorry there are no progress photos. I tried taking them but none came out right, in fact they came out bad. I really need to brush up on my photography skills 😦 I will work on remedying that too πŸ™‚
