The 100 Days Project - update I

I've been good and needle felted for whole 14 days in a row. Then I had a bit of a high temperature and I skipped a day. Then felted for another 4 days and realized I have to give it up for now. It's about me having allergies and being on the edge with them right now and the tiny little fibers that I inhale are making my lungs feel kinda bad and full. So for now, I'm pressing my pause button on this project :/

But this makes me think... did I fail? Should I stop completely because it doesn't look like I'll be doing it any time soon? And I just received my order of 50 shades of colors to use up.... gaaaah... Any suggestions? You'd really help if you'd share your wisdom with me my dear readers and friends. I'm also thinking about committing to some other type of 100 day project just to stay in the loop but I don't know... I really don't know.

Ending with a recap of my finished works during these 19 days:

Tiny bear, jointed. 2 inches tall :)

Tiny jellyfish made after my friend's beautiful drawing of sea animals. Mostly fish but this little guy kinda stood out amongst the crowd so I just had to make him :) You can see the drawing here.

I needed a special gift so I came up with this. This little frame used to be pink so I had to drown it in white gesso but it was worth it.

Made this tiny kitty for my artsy online friend Pavinee who draws every day and has a really cute and merry style. Find her here. Can you spot the cat?

My last little creation was Beni who is a bit bigger than the first bear - 2,75 inches tall. I'd like to develop my signature style teddy and I think I'm onto something with him. I just looove his cute big nose :)

I also made two tiny little pink birdies but they are not finished yet - as in made into earrings. I'll show them when they are :)

What are you up to? Are you doing this type of project too? I'd love to know about it so please share.

The 100 Days Project

Last month I stumbled upon - or was led to - this interesting project: 100 Artworks Challenge . It resonated with me so I said I'll do it and I chose needle felting as my medium. Nothing happened since :)

Today, I was let to this: The 100 Days Project.

Hmmmm... Right?

So, yes U. I got it, I am going to do 100 needle felted things, 100 days in a row - or so. I know I'll have to catch up some days as I won't be able to make it but that's ok. I know doing things each day is stressful, especially for me on the days I am just too tired or simply not at home. I learned that with my Small Sketchbook Challenge. But I want to do it - otherwise I wouldn't really put it out here :)

Wish me luck and come back to see what I'll make. I'll be posting on IG too (so much quicker), you can find me HERE.

Edit on April 8th, 2015:

After two days of felting really late at night I realized this project is really more about showing up, doing the work so I know now it's impossible to finish one thing each day, no matter how small it is (ok, if I'd be doing 100 little balls or cubes that would be doable ;) but that's not my goal). So I'll be felting each day but finishing things up as I can. Sadly that means no 100 finished little ones in the end but that's ok too. This way I can work on more complicated things so there's more challenge in it for me ;)
