So I’ve been spending the last week quietly putting into action some of the things I roughed out two weeks ago, after that stint of 6 weeks solid temp work.
Yes, I sat down and nutted these general areas of action down, and have made a step toward getting at least SOME of them done. The Outlander story in picture form, which I affectionately call The Gabeaux Tapestry for instance. I have now completed three more panels for the new scarf design, and am therefore nearly halfway finished.
I hope you like the look of these:
I’m thinking I will adjust the colours in the next one so that there are some choices like this:
You’ll have to tell me whether the garish colours on skin tone and hair are too off putting, but I thought it might broaden the range of clothing this scarf could be worn with, without ruining the story.
And talking about colour change – it’s doing that outside right now. Moving from a long dry summer into the vivid colours of Autumn. I am quite ready for it to do that, because I love an excuse to huddle under covers and read a good book, guilt-free. I love making soup and casseroles that require slow cooking. And it’s a season for time spent inside playing board games or watching a DVD with friends.
And yes, I know it’s coming into summer for all of my northern hemisphere friends – enjoy!! It was just over a year ago that I set off for Scotland and found it wintry rather than the Spring I expected. Can you believe that I have been there and written a book in the time since? I can’t. As you can see on my planning map, travel is high on my list of priorities, and I’m already working out which of many pilgrimages to make to places close to my heart. No doubt I’ll write about them too and take you all along with me.
