Un-multi-tasking

Highlights magazine



I remember when I was a kid that one of the best parts of the month was when I got my Highlights magazine. It was a pretty dorky read but it always had a puzzle showing two pictures that looked the same but in fact were not. It occurs to me that I feel like I am looking at one of those puzzles when I look at in progress photos that I take while I am working. I can see the difference as I move lines sometimes only an inch or two- but as I get into the fine tuning I stare at my photos to figure out what I did... it makes me laugh since I have the feeling I am moving lines with purpose- but if I turn my back I quickly forget what the intention was. The Washington Post has these puzzles every Sunday- I hate them. But I do love this part of the process- and the challenge of sewing it all together. See if you can spot the differences!
