What do you do when something just won’t come together the way you think it should?
I’ve just had a stitching false start. The piece I thought I knew what I was doing with, didn’t agree. We couldn’t come to terms, it was deeply frustrating.
And although I like the old Robert the Bruce adage of ‘if at first you don’t succeed…’, I do not have the same mettle as fugitive medieval kings or patient cave dwelling spiders.
No, I failed, and so I did what was the most satisfying thing I could think of at the time – I ripped it out of the frame.
Instead, I am now working on a new piece inspired by a gorgeous silk yarn from Eleanor at Solstice Yarns – Moonbeams on a Mystic Sea.
I am in love with this silk and I’m back in the flow – phew!
