gave myself permission

I gave myself permission to go down a creative rabbit hole yesterday.  Instead of being on the computer.  Instead of opening a bundle or too.  Instead of dyeing something.  Instead of work on presents.  Instead of crocheting.  I started something new.  And I think I am going to continue today.

I like figuring things out.  I like learning.  So every time I go down that creative rabbit hole, I have that potential.  I am still loving the ecoprinting but there is a need for something different.  Many moons ago, I  made stuffed animals and dolls.  I have made the jointed stuffed animals.  It is not hard.  Mostly, it is just hard on the hands.  But a doll has been wheighing on my mind.  For some reason, making a doll has been a need.  So this week I have been starting that process.  I now have a body.

The body also has a face but I think I am going to change the face.  The body does not have hair but I have ideas around that.  Which means my crochet hook will come out again.  I think part of it was I needed to sit at my sewing machine more.  My crochet hook is much more mobile so it is easier to take with me.  At times I will get to where I just want to embroidery when we are traveling.  I think that has to do with needing to stitch as well.  

Still hands do not work for me well.  And I am going to need more mobile projects soon as well.  I will figure it out.
