So last night I forced myself to work on something... anything! I pulled out one of my Magic Mandala samples. This one was fused, with a straight-stitch around the edges. No, it's not my favorite method, but it is a sample and needed to be finished. Okay... load it on the frame and go. Go find that creativity... I managed to get most of the mandala stitched. This morning I finished the last ring of shapes and then did the background.
In the dark grey shapes I used Jodi Robinson's Circle Pop stencil, only using a single circle. I then stitched around the Circle Pop into a tear drop shape... ahhh, now its a circle drop! I also incorporated a single Circle Pop in the center. When I got to the background I tried to emulate the circle pops into my wind and pebble fill. I think it turned out pretty awesome!
Hoping this little bit of creativity pulls me out of my lazy funk.
