On occasion I take custom orders for stones and on occasion those requests throw me. This stone was one of those. A purple turtle was requested and I wasn't sure how to go about stitching a turtle on a felted stone.
After a few false starts I just kind of sighed and put it down while I thought about it. Sometimes thinking about it isn't the answer for me though. When I came back to it, I decided to just have fun with it and the project fell into place in a snap and a literal purple turtle sat on the table in front of me. I like how he/she turned out and am thrilled that his new owner does too.
Thinking and planning definitely has its place, but sometimes it's best to just step out of your own way, get out of your head, and have fun. Don't you think?
Happy weekend, everyone.
