Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

Repeating Linked Hearts Variation (and a sneak peek)

I had a couple of other linked hearts variations in the hopper and wanted to show one I finished today. It's a point fold heart and I love how it turned out. Of course, I always forget that point folds take up twice as many pages so I don't get to make as many repeats as I want. Still, the four in a row are lovely and turned out as well as I could have hoped.

Here is the pattern I used to make my book. Click on the picture to print it out full-sized. Use the directions from this post!

The problem of not having as many pages as I'd like for a design has been on my mind for a while. I've come up with a possible solution and did a prototype today at church (while I LISTENED VERY WELL). Here's a sneak peek...
