I just can't stop with the quotes! I've been mentally collecting quotes for so long, just waiting for the skills to do something with them. Turns out, doing something with them is just the practice I need to have the skills. Funny how that works.
This little line from the TV show Firefly is something I repeat to myself quite often. Things may slow me down from time to time, but there's no stopping this train.
I've been continuing with the MATS class this week, and the topic is ceramic. I'm really enjoying learning about how various home decor items are mass produced, and applying that knowledge to my approach to the artwork.
I have another hand-lettered quote for you guys today, too. This time, it's Thoreau.
I made this embroidery for a crafting swap with someone who enjoys nerd culture and old-school Mario, and I turned it into an embroidery pattern to share, since I figure everyone needs a Nintendo-based stitch sampler.
This week's MATS theme is hand-lettering, something I've never really tried before. Normally, by this point in the week, I'd have finished products to show, but I'm taking my time to practice this new-to-me skill. As I work, I thought it would be fun to share some of my hand-lettering projects as free printables on the blog.
