bud-1I sat down and did a proper project review yesterday afternoon.  Looking over my list I am moving a lot slower than planned or hoped.  I have a lot to do.  I am going to have to motivate myself.

I updated my tickler file (a la David Allen “Getting Things Done”) for February.  Also updated two daytimers and started in on SimpleMind+ mindmaps for February.

Made a list of DVDs, downloads, live stream I want to watch and listen to while rug hooking.

Did not quite finish the bud abstract, but it is close.  Just the background to do.

I did finish the central part of Lost Soul.  Though I had hoped to be finished the entire rug by now.  However now I need to do some serious colour planning and probably take a break for some dyeing to have enough fabric for the border.

I started reading Wassily Kandinsky’s Concerning the Spiritual in Art yesterday.  Interesting.  I also have a book on Hans Hofmann by Karen Wilkin to read.

Last year about this time I posted some very poorly produced videos on YouTube.  I also had links to my Pinterest account.  People on Pinterest have been pinning the videos and I thought I had better go check YouTube to see how they were doing.  I was in for a shock!  My “Rug Finishing 1” has over 2200 views!  Not bad for my first video that I shot myself.  I am hoping to redo the videos in the future.  I wander all over the place in the portfolio video.  And my hanging sleeve video is not complete.  The view in my “How to Rug Hook” video is awkward at best.  Ah well, hindsight is 20/20 they say.  I am hoping to work on upgrading the videos in March.  Stay tuned and check in later!  I will post here as they are posted to You Tube.
