This month the challenge is to think about your textile work space. How do you feel about this space? What role does it play in your life?
Many of us have workrooms or studios, others have set aside a corner of a room or just have a favourite chair. Personally I feel its important to me to have a room if possible because it means I can work on a project and leave it overnight to return in the morning with everything as I left it. I don’t have to waste time putting stuff away or getting it out. It means if I have spare half hour or so I simply walk in my room and do a little work. All these moments of work mount up. They are only a few moment here and there that are saved but it is one of the reasons I do manage to get things done.
I thought it might be fun to share images of workspaces too. So this is where I stitch.
The Colour Challenge
The colours this month were taken from a photograph I took while in Sydney recently.
Remember that the colours can only ever be a suggestion as computer screens display colours differently. The aim is to be as close as possible to the colours on your screen. From ColourLovers you can download swatches to use is Photoshop, Illustrator, or in a CSS file.
As usual when you have worked the idea swing back to this page and leave a comment with blog or flickr address so that people can take a look at what you have been working on or done. There is a flickr group for the Take it Further Design Challenge and Debra Spincic has another TIF blog. Please remember if you use Debra’s TIF blog to swing by here too!
There is a even a Take it Further group over on the stitching fingers community. The community has grown considerably to well over a 1100 members. It is not only a good way to keep in touch with the community but and all sorts of challenges, swaps go on.
