The tree might be finished…
I persevered – it was lovely to stitch, soft, yielding, warm. But it has given a whole new definition to wonky.
It hasn’t told me what it wants to be – I thought perhaps a rather arty wall hanging…
It would however need the skills of a remarkable magician, to overcome the wonkiness.
Years ago I made some clay pieces that might lend themselves to weighting the bottom edge.
But right now I think I’ll put it away and move on to something else. Maybe inspiration will strike if I stop trying to force it.

It’s a beautiful piece of work and I love the colours. And what’s wrong with a bit of wonkiness?
Thank you. I’m not normally bothered by a bit of wonkiness, but I’m not reconciled to this one yet – hopefully I’ll get there.
Surely a lot of that wonkiness will go when you block it. It’s gorgeous 😀
I hope so, my only problem at the moment is that I don’t have anything big enough to pin it on to. I’ve asked himself – so I won’t hold my breath, but he usually comes up with the goods at some stage.
trees are meant to be wonky.
the colours are lovely
Of course, you’re right. Thank you.
It is just stunning. You did a fabulous job.
There’s a wonderful flow and movement to this as well, which which counterpoints and compliments the wonkiness
You’re very kind!
it is a beautiful piece of work and everyone is right about the wonkiness not mattering, but I know no matter how others perceive and praise it I’d be just like you and it would trouble me too. At least you persevered and finished it (and it is lovely).
Thank you – you understand. I came close to abandoning it a few times, but it did start out as an experiment, and I wanted to see how it would turn out, so I’m glad I stuck with it. It taught me quite a lot too, so not entirely without merit, just not necessarily what I’d expected.
