Lunacy ????

I don't 'do' New Year resolutions, but I have decided to set myself some targets for 2008. One is to move myself on, in creative terms, at something more than the snail's pace that I usually manage. With this in mind, though by no means the only weapon in the armoury, I have signed up for Sharon Boggon's Take it Forward challenge which "aims to apply textile technique skills to design". Sharon is an embroiderer, I have watched her TAST challenge and been impressed with her commitment to this challenge which has required her to post a new stitch, with variations, every week throughout 2007. The TIF challenge is monthly which might seem leisurely to Sharon but will keep me on my toes!

What I'm looking for is a way to capture where I am now, so that I can try to measure what happens in 2008. Any suggestions with this would be very welcome!

I'll see you there Linda! i've signed up too in the hope it will spur me on to follow a methodical course. Hmmmm!

Capturing where you are now - how about taking photos of your half-dozen favourite recent-ish works, then writing a few words (or many!) on what you like about them. Put that away and re-evaluate at the end of the year.
