365 Somethings #13-20 + bonus

“I'm going to enjoy every second, and I'm going to know I'm enjoying it while I'm enjoying it. Most people don't live; they just race. They are trying to reach some goal far away on the horizon, and in the heat of the going they get so breathless and panting that they lose sight of the beautiful, tranquil country they are passing through; and then the first thing they know, they are old and worn out, and it doesn't make any difference whether they've reached the goal or not.”
Jean Webster

As you know, Hanna and I are creating 365 somethings this year. That is the goal, but it doesn't have to be one something per day. I'm focusing on 7 somethings each week. My somethings are stitched collages on index card dividers. Do you like the stitching? I'm going to post all of these at flickr. 

 I am loving the process, I love that each card is completely different, and I love that I can do a few at a time when I am at the sewing machine. I am taking the time to immerse myself in the hum of the sewing machine, in selecting papers and colors and shapes and building collages. 

Hanna is creating collages. They are beautiful, have you seen them? Here's Hanna's Week 2. Here's Hanna's intro to 365 somethings

There's a Flickr group for 365 Somethings and you can find my Somethings in my 365 Somethings Flickr set. Or read about Somethings #1-12.

I'm teaching at 21 Secrets Art Journal Workshop!
