@suzipoland did homework for our workshop tomorrow! Can't wait to see my surprise. And she has started her own hashtag, so we can follow her experiments.

alfalky I moved into my new room yesterday. It feels good to have a room of one's own! Now to get to work on making shit happen this year What are you going to bring into the world this year? It helps to declare it & be specific! 5d
  •   ginevramakes This is a cool question! Quilting fabrics that look a bit different & maybe I should do more writing too 5d
  •   madebyliss a bit of both Alex. I have an idea for embroidered and cross stitched literary quotes for kids, quirky not twee and some unusual folkloric quotes for grown ups. Then on to some cross stitch templates x 5d
  •   effiedee I'm going to make heaps of weird objects and do loads of drawings and paintings and then have a book printed with photos of everything. Then, in June, hopefully I'll pop out this baby and the rest of my year will be calm. Hahaha 5d
  •   jumbojibbles I'm gonna make stuff with big felt balls, gonna get a serger and make stuff that serves no purpose!! 5d
  •   alfalky @ginevramakes sounds good! 3d
  •   alfalky @madebyliss lovely ideas. Sounds beautiful! Get to it, girl! X 3d
  •   alfalky @effiedee awesome!! Manic and calm :)) ha! 3d
  •   alfalky @jumbojibbles yes!!! Purposelessness is the best xo 3d

alfalky Do you find joyful & playful things are seen as less thoughtful or intelligent than more 'serious' things?
This is snippet of text about author Deborah Oswald (creator of Offspring)

  •   alfalky Yes! The world can always use more joyfullness, that and love. Undeniable truths. @catleexox xx 5d
  •   alfalky @evie_barrow yes! I love that idea of countering things via art. I also love the idea that the artist exists to make room for alternatives (often by going too far...) xx 5d
  •   alfalky And yes! Re: the SOUL! And emotional intelligence. KEY things we need to know that aren't covered in school. It's the education that education forgot. I adore Alain deBotton's take on all this too. He sees culture as the answer. @evie_barrow 5d
  •   alfalky @meandtex I have had those doubts too, but always come back to what is important and necessary and needed. Often that means adorable handmade koalas. :))) 5d
  •   alfalky @janickejohansen well put. Love to hop over a should. :))) 5d
  •   meandtex Over a period of getting to know myself and becoming more emotionally mature, I have found I have to keep coming back to the honest process of creating what needs to be made and to let go of how others perceive it, Alex @alfalky 5d
  •   meandtex It is a great question to discuss with other artists, thanks for posing it! @alfalky 5d

alfalky Today I'm packing (or it might be more apt to say I'm avoiding packing). I have been storing a few things at my dad's house and now it's time to move it all back to Sydney. One year of nomad-ing is complete. It's funny, it feels like I'm leaving home for the first time, again. 1w

alfalky "Alex has a way of relieving the pressure we feel to make something immediately beautiful... This makes it more enjoyable and leads daunting" - Loren. C

If you're looking for more enjoyment and less daunting, more delight and less pressure please join us! There are a couple of spots left to draw with thread this Sunday!
Did I mention I always stop by the Greek bakery on the way for this class... Delicious shortbread and tea are essentials.
