What materials did you use? A SEAM RIPPER! Ugh

What are you most proud of? That I haven't lit it on FIRE!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I don't know. patients I guess. It's one of my weakest virtues and I go from loving it to hating it every five seconds. It is the first so in guess that's to be expected. USE HIGH CONTRASTING STITCHING ON THE BACK JUST UNCASE YOU DO SOMETHING, that's not a mistake, BUT YOU HATE IT AND CAN LIVE WITH IT! like the decorative stitch I put in the swish. That was a momentary laps in judgement (is that the same as a mistake?)

Thank you. I have been there before with many pieces of other kinds of art I do. They seems to have ways to fix something that didn't quit look the way you wanted. The creative stitching can look much different in the bible that it does with variegated thread running thru your project. I like to take risks and sometimes they pay off. One of the things my old man taught me is there is an ass for every seat. Meaning just cuz I don't like it don't mean that there isn't one person out there that will love it. I will finish it it's almost done.

I love this project. It has lots of movement and I love the colors you chose.

I like it, how you came out with the pattern?

It's a similar to a lot of the things I do. I'm very in to butterflies and dragonflies right now. They have to do with change and transformation and becoming something better than they were. I survived ankle fusions, total knee replacement and a large brain tumor; it changes you. I feel better than I did, I'm freer to do more, but I'm different. I pulled it out of it's hiding place and I will finish it, but it will be a red headed stepchild ;0)
