You know the drill: Still stitching. I alternate between despair (it’s taking FOREVER) and joy (what texture and depth).
The thing that keeps me going is not knowing how it will turn out. Will it be a masterwork or just something on which I spent a lot of time?
Of course having a nice (and sometimes sunny) studio helps make all the hours spent there more acceptable. I have the cats set up on fleece blankets on my sewing table under the halogen lights. They’re happy!
Everything needs to be picked up every night and this cubby full of stuff has occurred naturally, but it’s a joy to look at each morning and night — full of texture. If you are wondering why there are so many thimbles, the fit depends on how warm my studio is. I have an 8, 10, and 12 ready to go with all the threads I’m using in the little tote bag.
