Production is slow this year. I’m building a business as a Corporate Change Coach, which, as you might guess, takes a lot of time. However, I always make time for the studio – but not as much as I’d like!
There is a great deal of stitching in my Feeling series, which also takes time. Each individual piece is stitched in a corresponding thread, each stitch line 1/4″ away from the next. The outline shape calls to mind a happy, fat, little Buddha while the blue and green evoke a feeling of serenity for me, much as sitting on the beach, gazing out at the ocean.
Time is a theme in my life lately. It takes time to build a business. It takes time to make big changes. It takes time to make art. And yet, even in the midst of tight scheduling and priority juggling, I can always find moments of serenity. How do you find serenity in your life?
Constructive criticism and comments are always welcome. Please share your thoughts!

Info about my Feelings series: I interpret my random abstract doodles as emotions. The guiding point is the outer boundary of the doodle. The boundary evokes the feeling. From there, I contemplate how to bring that particular feeling alive in fiber.
