It not only can get better you are on your way to being an expert in Thread Art.; This piece is so beautiful.. I can see your growth, patience, and attention to detail. I can see way you loved doing the hat because it is gorgeous. I am so glad to see that you are enjoying these processes. I hope to see them in person one day. Keep on going. Boy are you growing,

Thank you all for your replies. To Lisa7337, for me at first it seemed like I couldn't do this art without actually knowing how to quilt or sew. But I am still learning and in the process of getting better. Lola Jenkins is a great teacher for this class so glad I found a passion and I am sticking with it. And by the way, I watched the video 4-5 times and I still watch it, but that's the great thing about the courses. The class itself is not hard, we only put boundaries on ourselves, go ahead and try it, you'll love it!
