Thank you! Next project I am going to concentrate on doing parallel stitching. I see from others' projects that this is important. I've always been more free form.

There are no rules about this process. No idea is more important than another. Just follow your creative muse.

Stick with the free form. This is awesome.

Beautiful work!

Oh no, your free form is great! I like the way you break up the horizontal lines -- not all the energy goes in one direction, but it's not *too* broken that it loses all of its energy. It's very well balanced and interesting!

Thanks, Steph. I cut up my large piece (see second piece) and am using the smaller pieces in a variety of projects, including a case for my new iPad mini and in a new purse I designed to have a window so I can change the insert. See Projects for both. Next one will be free-form.
