On one of the CQ lists Lauri is having a competition encouraging stitchers to work outside their comfort zone (OOYCZ). I joined just to challenge myself because I am so far into my comfort zone that I hyperventilate just looking at certain colors or using certain techniques. We can't reveal what we are doing until it is over in July. I finally got my block made and started stitching and finding it hard...ripping out all I did the other day. But it is giving me a chance to evaluate why I make certain color choices and what is so scary about others.
Sometimes I feel my comfort zone has evolved into a rut.... Anyway I am taking photos as I go along and when I can I will share it all.... But one thing requires photo editing an image and I can expand on photo-editing techniques without giving away any secrets about my OOYCZ.
