When I’m thinking of posts, I keep coming back to the central idea of having an Informed Style. To me, an Informed Style is the result of having a variety of inspirations and passions.
A big part of My Informed Style is that I’m a creator – crocheting, knitting, lace making – I’d love nothing more than to spend each day working with my hands to create textiles. Right now, my main pursuit is counted cross stitch…and when I tell people this I usually get funny looks.
The piece I’m working on is a ‘Japanese maiden’. I got the kit for it it over 6 years ago, barely started it and then life/work/school got in the way. Now that I don’t have coursework on top of work-work I decided to pick it up and finally finish it!
I like to work on it while listening to podcasts – FranceInter and France Culture are favourites. It’s a great way to enjoy a hobby while learning about philosophy, art, music or current events. Yay for multitasking!
The work seen here is what I’ve managed to finish from August – late December…ouf. Lots more remains, but bit by bit I’m getting there. I’ll post progress pictures as time goes on.
