AHIQ- share your improv #27

I'm hoping others have improv to share because, as you may have noticed, there hasn't been much going on around here (I'm still working flat out in real life but the end is not yet in sight).  However, spurred on by the desire to have something to share today I paused for a couple of hours yesterday and did a wee bit of sewing, before heading back to the computer.
  

I knew that the text part of this project wasn't photographing well, but a couple of comments last time made me realise that is isn't showing up at all - trick of the light - so here's a close up to prove that it's there. 

It occurs to me that this is one of those projects that doesn't look very different from one progress picture to the next, and that is even more obvious because progress at the moment is so painfully slow but that's the way it goes sometimes. I have to keep working, and it is in my nature to want to push and push until the job is down,  but I know I ought to take more little breaks, if only for the sake of my poor eyes, which are not enjoying staring at a screen for hours on end.

  1. I hope your work is going well and you will be done soon as it interferes with your sewing time! Your words piece is coming along nice and I do like the placement of the lighthouses.

  2. Glad you showed the close up of the words. I had been wondering where you were going to put them! The two lighthouses are a delightful addition to the waves and words.

    I spent 30+ years staring at a computer screen all day so I'm glad I'm retired now!

  4. I love your lighthouses in the ocean . . . a little along without too many worries is ideal for December.

  5. Your quilt progress is coming along, take time to just enjoy the process. Sometimes stuck, sometimes inspiration
    just floods in. It's all good.
    And 'work' can be tedious and draining, yes.
    But in the back of your mind you can be planning and creating. That's what I tell myself.

  6. It is, actually, really nice to see more close ups. I think I could do more of that as well. And isn't it great to have AHIQ to spur you on a little each month?

  9. I love it and am glad you showed your wording.
    Sometimes we have projects that take lots of time: very detailed or we aren't quite sure of our way forward. Anxiety about "publishing progress" is the worst problem with blogging. And yet I like seeing the development details and thought processes so much more than quick results. We are makers. The process of making always rises to the top.

  12. Oh, yes. Treat those small bits of sewing as therapy for computer eyes. They really are. And they'll also add up--more than you think. I can see now that I need to look up shipping forecasts to figure out what these words mean. Such a landlubber.

Feel free to comment away! I read everything and welcome all feedback. I seem to be getting a lot of comments from no-reply bloggers at the moment - if you don't get a response, that will be why.
