I totally pulled the stitches that I hated and then fixed the piece. I gifted to. Friend that won't stop going on and on about how much she loves it. I have learned that taste is subjective and what I don't like another can love. I know every project has an ugly phase and that I will never make something that I won't think needs improvement. I also feel, that you can't ignore your feelings and they are going to be there no matter what your brain try's to tell you. I appreciate your support and I take your kind words to heart. People see it and love it, that's what matters, right. A girl in ceramics hates a piece she made cuz we see it like underwater and she says it's supposed to be a tree. Ugh.
