I challenge you... :)

So far so good...4 days and 4 doodles!
 
Anyway...my Monday morning thought...
 
Is there anybody else out there who would like to join our game?
 
My friend Terri and I have said we are going to doodle daily for 100 days.
 
So....either publicly...or privately...
 
you may like to
 
choose something...drawing...painting....sewing...sketching...cooking...
 
....something you want to do but are not managing to get around to?
 
If something springs to mind....
 
...a project you have in mind that you've never got to...?
 
...and you'd like to do it daily for 100 days.
 
I'd love to hear from you...

  1. Hi Jill, what a good idea. I will practice the piano each day for at least 10 minutes, perhaps more. And at the end I will play you a piece that I've practiced. With good wishes, your Dad x

  2. Love the bird, Jill! I wish I had something to contribute but under stress my creative mojo just flees...sorry.

  3. I always really, really want to do things like this but I never follow through. I just can't commit... x

    1. Thanks Maxabella, I know the feeling...I'm hoping that because I've said I'm doing it so publicly that it might stick...? I am really enjoying it so far...day 8 today!

  4. I'd love to be able to commit to something like this. I can't get past day 4 of the photo a day. Good luck with the doodling.

  5. Doodle-a-day, love it! And great idea to just open it up to a general 100-day challenge. There are lots of things I'd love to do each day for 100 days or more, but like the others above, I'm a commitment-phobe. Visiting via the Rewind.

  6. I love handwriting and each year I do six letters in six weeks. I sometimes do this as a linky but even just one a week for six weeks is usually too hard for most people!

  7. ooooooookay then, you've talked me into it.
    I shall dig out the sketch book (pristine, unused and 5 years old) and pencils and have a go at daily drawing/sketching....eeeek scary! Here I go......

  8. Hi Jill,

    I do something creative every day, in the evenings when the Kids are in bed and usually of the knitting or crocheting variety. It's such a great idea to have a time limit though to get an old project re-started and finished. I have a cross-stitch that I've been meaning to get finished for, um, 15 years now! Maybe I'll apply your 100 days theory, will let you know :-)

    1. Hi Mel, I was talking to a friend the other day and we thought the trick to keeping the 100 day challenge going is to set the daily task to something really minimal...5, 10 minutes? Then we'd feel so successful if we did more than that...high achievers at 15 minutes :) Hope you get to the cross stitch, and yes, let me know if you do!

100 days of doodling....

A couple of days ago, a friend of mine told me about a website where people commit to doing ...something....

...sketching...photography....painting....writing....

...each day for 100 days.

Unfortunately, that particular 100 day project has closed and the people on it are up to day 34 already, so I've decided to do my own version.

What I want to do ...for 100 days...is get out my black ink pen and draw...something...everyday for 100 days.

doodle #1 
I'm often having a little whinge to myself that I don't do enough drawing and designing...so...

here goes...

It feels exciting...and who knows what new fabric designs may come out of it? But I don't really want to have too many goals or set directions. I'll just see where it goes....

My friend Terri is joining me in this challenge!

How about you? interested??

P.S. Take a look the page I have created called 100 days of doodling to see all the doodles I have done so far.

Printing on hessian...

Here's a few samples of  the new placemats and coasters I've been developing over the past couple of weeks.
The designs are printed on hessian and the edges zig-zagged  to stop fraying. They're fun to make and I have a few more designs too that I'll show you in a day or two as I complete them.
These ones have a nice, relaxed summer vibe. I hope you like them. 

So, now that I've figured out the designs it won't be long till I have some in my online shop.

Day 40, Hibiscus painting complete....

On Friday, I finished my fourth 100 days project painting, of a couple of small hibiscus branched placed in a mug. 



Last week it was looking a bit touch and go as to whether I continued doing the project. Those leaves seemed to take forever! ...and I was tired! :) 
Now that I'm back on track, I can really see the value of trying to do something for 100 days, through tiredness, through a lack of ideas, through boredom. I feel like I'm in training to have a bit of grit and stickablility. Here's hoping anyway!
So, crisis over for the moment and I've spent the last couple of days planning and doing the under painting for the backgrounds of my next couple of paintings.
57 days to go!
The project finishes on the 1st of September, the first day of spring. That means only 57 days of winter left too! Nice thought!
