I’m in panic mode because four of my samples from this summer are missing. I had them Saturday. But today when I went to get them for photographing…no where. This is one sample from this weekend. I’ll be back with a post on the topic once I relocate those samples that go with this one.
I’m having second thoughts on my “ugly” post from Friday. Maybe there are another few lessons from that piece that I need to learn. I received two comments about that piece and both touched on the appropriateness of that designation.
Perhaps I could say “disappointing” instead of “ugly” that relates only to my feeling about what happened with the piece. We have a saying, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Maybe ugly is, too. Usually I don’t even think of whatever I happen to be posting in terms of degrees of beauty or ugliness. I’m not even sure that when I’m stitching something that I even aim at making something beautiful. Do you have any thoughts about the part beauty plays in your stitching and once it’s finished do you come to a judgement about the level of beauty achieved? Please leave a comment, if you do. I would like to think more about this subject and other people’s input is always helpful.
One of my other endeavors over the weekend was to learn the diamond stitch. I’d found it in a book and then went hunting on the net because I couldn’t make the knot on the left hand edge turn out well. And I couldn’t find an illustration of that portion of the stitch in step by step. If any one can clue me in about how to do this, I’d appreciate it. Thanks very much.
Next scheduled post: Wednesday (us, west coast)
