UPDATEPosted: September 30, 2015
It’s been an absurdly long time since I have shared progress on my stupidly large project. The piece involves 162, 500 stitches in over 50 colours. In order to not be burned out (and have this blahg be certifiably boring) I’m embracing the fact that this project will be with me for a long time.
It may not look like much, because it certainly does not feel like much. With all the white empty space looming beside my individual stitches, it is quite easy to be intimidated. I’ve been beating that monster down by attempting to dedicate an hour of stitching time a day to this specific piece. It’s not going so well, I’ve clocked 17 hours on it since September 1st. But, tracking my hours has forced me to be more conscious of my creative endeavours.
I must admit I do love taking pictures of this piece because it lets me truly see the image emerge.
And in comparison to the photo from the last time I posted, it looks like I’ve made a huge dent. And my photography skillz have improved too!
How are your big projects coming along? Any tricks for keepin’ the flames burnin’ over the long haul?
