Sometimes you gather your fabrics and threads, needles and scissors and start a new project.
Your hopes are high for a gorgeous result. You stitch and stitch…and then you hold it away from yourself to take a good look.
You turn it a different direction and take another look.
You think about it and take one last look.
Nope–it’s just not working for me. Maybe it’s because I started with the less exciting colors. Maybe it’s because I love to do trees and leaves with the sewing machine. Maybe it’s because I want beads and bling. Perhaps it wants finer thread.
But I don’t want to spend any more stitching time until I get it figured out a little better. I love this piece of painted fabric. I want it to turn out right. I’m not there yet.
Darn! Back to the drawing board!
