When I'm swamped with embroidery commissions, I think about how much I want to be drawing and painting. Then when I'm drawing I think about how I've got loads of embroidery to do. The good thing about this unnecessary worry, is that I quickly draw things and move on to something else. This often results in new drawing styles that I don't mind playing around with.
This is an example of a 10 minute break. Just felt tip pens and moody girls.
